Financial, economic and trade sanctions and embargoes

21 Déc.


Au sujet de la formation

All companies, whether financial or industrial, are currently facing major challenges, particularly with regard to financial, economic and trade sanctions and embargoes imposed at international, multilateral, European, third country and Belgian levels. Since the start of the Russian-Ukrainian war, sanctions and embargoes have significantly evolved and affected the global economy. Given the current international situation, it is likely that they will continue to have significant implications for companies.

Compliance with international regulations concerning sanctions and embargoes, and the fight against money laundering, is a complex task, given the technical nature of the subject and the number of standards involved. All companies and organizations must understand the regulations that apply to them, put in place effective processes to maintain compliance, avoid engaging in non-compliant conduct, and reduce risk of sanctions, fines and liability that can drastically impact their reputation and viability.

This morning seminar has been designed to help you meet the challenges of understanding the various regulations, complying with obligations, putting effective processes in place, maintaining your organization's reputation and mitigating risks. Exceptional focus has been put on providing real-case examples, case studies and illustrations to help you apply the takeaways of the day in real-time.

Join us this morning to benefit from our expertise in sanctions and embargoes, and to discuss these issues with your peers.

The morning will be led by:
