Membership Benefits

The only organization dedicated to the sanctions professionals worldwide

Russia Sanctions Hub

Economic and trade sanctions against Russia are complex, ever- evolving, and the risks of violation can be high. With that in mind, we created Navigating Sanctions Against Russia. ACSS members can access a dedicated bank of information providing updates on Russia sanctions imposed by the EU, UK and US, videos, glossaries and a comparative ‘cheat sheet’ on sanctions imposed on Russian banks.

Interactive Sanctions Map

The ACSS Interactive Sanctions Map shows all countries targeted by sanctions. Click on any country on the world map to find out which sanctions apply. You can click on a continent and then country and read a summary of UN, US, EU, UK, and Canada sanctions, if applicable. Find out which specific sanctions are in place for the country you are doing business with! Access the Interactive Sanctions Map here.
