According to Safe-Zone, the company’s platform enables customers to comply with local laws and international arrangements, preventing errors that could cause “significant delays in exports, heavy fines, and even criminal charges.”


Safe-Zone CEO Eyal Bar-Or tells Foreign Investment Watch that the platform has multiple “layers of defense,” including checks against Export Control Classification Numbers, and OFAC sanctions lists. The company can provide reports on particular products and companies.


Bar-Or says the product will be relevant to regulators, startups, investors, and even law firms that want to ensure compliance with U.S. and global regulatory regimes. “Our goal is to serve any VC investor as well as any company that wants to comply with U.S. law,” says Bar-Or. “We also aim to give law firms a real technical backbone in order to make sure their clients will not invest in a company that will put them in trouble with U.S. enforcement agencies.”
