As the international trade regulatory environment in the United States, Europe and internationally grows increasingly, with hundreds of domestic agencies continuously adjusting and overseeing policy and compliance, the need for guidance has never been greater.
All internationally trading organisations and their foreign trading partners face vigorous scrutiny to ensure compliance with export controls, economic sanctions and other international trade control laws.
Defense and dual-use trade controls:
- United States: International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and antiboycott regulations as well as nuclear trade controls.
- Europe: the EU Dual Use Regulation, the EU Common Military List and the EU Common Position on export licensing criteria for military items, as implemented, administered and enforced by EU member countries’ national authorities.
International sanctions programs:
- United Nations: sanctions adopted by the United Nations Security Council and implemented by U.N. member countries.
- United States: programs administered by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the U.S. State Department.
- Europe: sanctions regulations adopted by the EU Council, as implemented, administered and enforced by EU member countries’ national authorities.
