Click Procurement and sourcing > Setup > Vendors > Embargoed countries/regions.

Use this form to identify countries/regions in which you cannot do business because of embargo restrictions. New vendor requests are screened against the list of embargoed countries/regions to prevent vendors from being added in those countries/regions.

A country/region may be embargoed for one of your companies but not for another company. For this reason, embargoed countries/regions are defined on a per-company basis.


You configure the vendor request pages and system checks, such as the embargoed country/region validation, in the Vendor request configurations form.

An employee wants to do business with a vendor that is not currently a vendor with the employee’s company. The employee submits a new vendor request. The validation process checks the vendor company address and finds that the company is located in a country/region that is embargoed for the company in which the employee operates. The vendor request is flagged and a message is displayed to the purchasing agent indicating that the requested vendor is located in an embargoed country/region.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




Add a country/region to the list of embargoed countries/regions for the selected company.
