A pre-recorded streaming AUDIO replay from the June 2016 live telephone seminar, U.S. Export Controls and Economic Sanctions—Remarkable Opportunities and Challenges Created by Recent Extraordinary Changes.

The most significant changes in decades have been made to U.S. export controls and economic sanctions during recent years. As a result of the Export Control Reform Initiative (ECRI) launched by the Obama Administration, hundreds of items have been moved from the stringently controlled U.S. Munitions List (USML) to the less controlled Commerce Control List (CCL), which have created many new export opportunities, but also many challenges. With respect to sanctions, the Obama Administration has liberalized certain sanctions against Cuba and Iran, but many aspects of the comprehensive economic embargoes against those countries remain in place. At the same time, the U.S. Government has created incredibly complex and targeted sanctions against certain entities in Russia, Ukraine, and the Crimea region.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of U.S. export control and economic sanctions regimes
  • Strategies for complying with “deemed exports” requirements
  • Determining licensing requirements (including license exception/exemption possibilities)
  • Screening procedures for Specially Designated Nationals and other restricted parties
  • Current hot topics in sanctions relating to Cuba, Iran, Russia/Crimea/Ukraine, etc.
  • Enforcement trends
