Changes coming to OFSI guidance in 2024

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: OFSI Blog

The Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) is committed to providing high-quality, widely accessible and easy to understand guidance to support our users to implement financial sanctions. As part of this commitment, we are always looking for ways to improve our guidance to ensure it can be as beneficial as possible. This blog explains the new changes we will be making this year and how our upgraded guidance will better support you.  


What changes are coming in 2024? 

We will be upgrading your guidance experience by transitioning to a new Sanctions Digital Guidance format, replacing our previous PDF guidance. Unless otherwise specified, this will not routinely include changes to the content of the guidance but instead introduce improvements for accessibility and user experience.  

This change will bring a variety of benefits: 

  • Improved navigation means it will be easier to find the support you are looking for, when you need it. 
  • Improved responsiveness will enable us to provide new information faster and more efficiently than we currently can. 
  • Improved accessibility will ensure our guidance is inclusive, and seamlessly available to all our users. 
  • Improved compatibility will mean you can access our guidance from any device. This will include mobiles and tablets to give you support however you access our guidance. 

To support our new and upgraded guidance, you may notice changes to our website as we improve its layout and structure.  


When will these changes happen? 

We will be upgrading all of our financial sanctions guidance to Sanctions Digital Guidance throughout 2024. During the transition, you may find that some guidance will be available as digital and some as legacy PDFs. 

You will begin seeing upgraded guidance from today, 13 February, with our newly upgraded general guidance now available. 


How can I provide feedback?
