If you provide services internationally, even if they are delivered locally, you must know whether your transactions are permitted. If you transfer technology - including supplying software and/or hardware, you must know whether all those through which it passes or the end user is affected by sanctions. Sanctions are restrictions on trade, the movement of assets and persons. They are economically or politically motivated. If your business breaches sanctions, including those imposed by a foreign government, your own business may suffer severe consequences. Sanctions in Action will lead you through an explanation of what sanctions are, and how they are applied, and how you must respond and the consequences if you breach them.

Sanctions in Action

If you buy or sell internationally, your company must know whether your supplier, customer, agent, distributor or even banker is someone that is subject to sanctions.

Why you should attend  

That area is sanctions. Sanctions are made by governments for one of four purposes:

1) to protect the state and its citizens against hard – these sanctions relate to, for example, terrorism and the financing of terrorism

2) to protect society at large from abuse – these sanctions relate, for example, to the supply of weapons

3) to support foreign policy – these sanctions include, for example, restrictions on travel or asset transfer by leaders of regimes that the countries making the sanctions do not agree with 4) to support trade – these sanctions are often created by governments to protect domestic industry In Sanctions in Action, expert presenters from governments, industry and advisory practices will provide you with the information necessary to identify and manage the risks created for your company by sanctions regimes.
