This webinar will explore the compliance challenges for US and global companies as the pace of change in US and EU economic and trade sanctions regimes has continued to increase. A substantial focus will be on the US and EU sanctions regimes relating to Russia and Iran, including areas such as the EU blocking regulation in relation to Iran, and on developments relating to cryptocurrency. Anticipating and preparing for potential changes to sanctions requirements, and strategies for minimising sanctions risk, are practical necessities in a changing sanctions environment; this webinar will discuss practical strategies to address changing sanctions restrictions.
