Update on EU Sanctions Cases and Latest Developments
For corporates and financial institutions doing international business, it is vital to be up-to-date with global sanctions regulations. Though a business may be compliant with the high standards set by U.S. sanctions, this does not automatically mean the same business will comply with EU sanctions.
Is your sanctions/export controls program prepared for these types of nuances and discrepancies?
As a sanctions/export controls officer, you can no longer rely on a standard set of global rules and need to know the details of targeted or custom-made measures to avoid hefty penalties.
