Sanctions in Action: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 30-31 October 2008

Doing business is more difficult than ever before: aside from economic and credit fears, rising costs of employment and skills shortages, quotas and trade restrictions, there is one area which is often overlooked until it's too late: the rapidly growing international sanctions regime.

Sanctions say what you cannot buy or sell, and who you cannot sell to or buy from. Sanctions say who your bankers can and cannot deal with, either directly or indirectly. Sanctions say who you are not able to refuse to deal with.

Sanctions range from controls on products to money movements, from countries to individuals and even named ships and companies.

Sanctions are imposed by countries or by international groups.

Sanctions are always politically driven, but sanctions have an effect on businesses outside the country that imposes them. They are used as an instrument of foreign policy, of control of criminal enterprises (including terrorism) and for trade purposes.

If you do trade, or if you finance or advise on trade, sanctions create a risk for you and / or your clients.

Sanctions apply to banks, insurance companies and others in financial services AND to trading companies in all manner of industries.

If you or your company breaches sanctions, then you might find that assets are frozen or even people are sent to jail.
