On March 2, 2022, as part of a string of sanctions and export controls, the Russia/Belarus Foreign Direct Product (“FDP”) Rule and Russia/Belarus-Military End User (“MEU”) FDP Rule took effect. These rules, generally, restrict the sale to Russia and Belarus of foreign-produced items produced with certain controlled U.S.-origin software or technology.

What you will learn:

  • The scope of technologies for which export to Russia is restricted has been significantly expanded;
  • How foreign direct product rules work and apply;
  • Which countries are considered partner countries, for the purpose of application of the FDP rules;
  • Which license exceptions are available, as well as the specific situations in which they are available.
  1. It is a members-only, intimate conversation that enriches your connections and knowledge of specific sanctions topics.
  2. Chatham house rules apply.
  3. SanctionsConnect calls are NOT recorded, so attend live!
  4. A maximum of 50 participants can attend the call. First come first served.
