Businesses can be exposed to a wide range of sanctions imposed by different authorities around the world. Any violations could bring legal, financial and reputational consequences.

Sanctions compliance is complex and is more than just checking a list of restricted companies and individuals before engaging with any partner. There are also binding obligations, as well as those that require compliance because of locations of assets and businesses.

Latest development in Hong Kong and the Mainland will also be covered.
