SanctionsConnect is an opportunity for ACSS members to join a discussion with industry experts on a monthly hot sanctions topic. The Call will be conducted by an expert in the field who will set the stage and then invite participants to contribute to the conversation. Come ready to discuss your greatest challenges and ask your most pressing questions!
This month’s call will cover dual-use goods. In the U.S, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce is responsible for regulating the export of most commercial items, often referred to as “dual-use” items which are those having both commercial and military or proliferation applications. Common examples include radio navigation systems and nuclear power technologies. At one stage, even margarine and the Playstation 2 console were briefly considered dual-use goods! Participate in this ACSS SanctionsConnect Call to discuss the challenges and best practices for dealing with transactions and business deals involving dual-use goods.
Since there are only 30 spots available, we must limit registration to a maximum of two participants from each organization. Attendance is on a first-come-first-served basis, so reserve your spot today!
