Economic Sanctions 101: Compliance, Risk and Best Practices for Businesses in the Global Supply Chain


View recording

The United States maintains a complex web of embargoes and economic sanctions targeting various countries, entities and individuals. These programs are constantly evolving as evidenced by 2019 developments impacting Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba and key industry sectors.  

U.S. businesses operating overseas are expected to understand the rules, manage risk properly and stay fully compliant. The consequences of noncompliance can be severe, including:

  • Civil and/or criminal penalties
  • Suspension of export privileges
  • Increased government scrutiny
  • Negative publicity

Join our attorneys for this webinar, which will provide an overview of current embargo and economic sanctions programs enforced by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, and the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. In a rapidly changing international landscape, our legal team will offer concrete recommendations and best practices for compliance and keeping abreast of new regulatory and legislative developments.
