Navigating UK, EU and US Enforcement Sanctions to Mitigate Risk and Lessons Learned

With the current landscape in Russia and impending sanctions from China, this has had a direct effect on DACH region industries. Companies and banks are not clear on the new regulations due to the varying enforcement of sanctions between each country. As a result, it is important for them to be aware what the guidelines and requirements are to avoid sanctions, as to protect themselves from punishment and mitigate risk.

Practical Takeaways from this interactive workshop include:

- The introduction under Council Regulation (EU) 269/2014 (Regulation 269) for imposing an asset freeze against individuals and entities that significantly frustrate EU sanctions.

- Examining the European Union (EU) adoption of an 11th package of sanctions against Russia.

- Investigating the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) new imposition of nearly 100 sanctions on Russian elites and Russia’s industrial base, financial institutions, and technology suppliers.

- Comparing US, UK and vs EU sanctions enforcement:

  • Analysing the transparency in their decisions.
  • Understanding what the court systems and counsels’ priorities are.
  • Recent trends within each body.

- Examining the reliance on national member states to enforce and adopt.

- How US sanctions on China will affect DACH region companies.

- Discover cross-border enforcement elements and how enforcement are likely to cooperate.
