Businesses nowadays are facing rapidly proliferating and sometimes conflicting sanctions measures imposed by different authorities around the world. We have seen a myriad of Russia-related sanctions since the war in Ukraine as well as the implementation of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. Non-compliance could bring legal, financial, commercial and reputational consequences to a business.

A robust sanctions compliance programme involves more than just checking against lists of restricted parties, businesses should develop policies, procedures and internal controls corresponding to the sanctions risks they are exposed to. All of these must base upon certain levels of understanding of sanctions and sanctions compliance.

In this seminar, an expert in political and sanctions risk will give an overview on the basics of sanctions, examine the core elements in a sanctions compliance programme, and share practical experience with case study. Below is a summary of contents covered:
