Please join Morgan Lewis for a webinar that will update you on the latest sanction programs that the U.S. government has enacted, as well as provide a refresher on previously enacted programs.

Just when you think you understand Embargoed Country Sanctions, another Executive Order is issued or a new set of regulations is promulgated or a new general license is published. The last few months have borne witness to a number of significant changes in the United States' sanction programs. 

Did you know...

  • The extensive reach of U.S. sanctions is now, more than ever, a critical consideration to any global enterprise. Imposition of penalties for violations is high on the U.S. government's priority list.
  • A November Executive Order expands U.S. extraterritorial jurisdiction  in certain cases against foreign/non-U.S. violators' successors, parents, and subsidiaries. 
  • A new general license became available in October for exports of food to Sudan and Iran.
