U.S. export and trade sanctions laws have long been a key element of the United States” efforts to promote national security and foreign policy interests. These laws include trade and investment sanctions, export controls on certain “dual-use‚Äù civilian and defense goods, software, technology, and services, as well as restrictions on transactions involving certain prohibited parties. These laws are broadly drafted and interpreted, and they can apply extraterritorially to both U.S. and non-U.S. companies. U.S. enforcement activities have resulted in enhanced scrutiny of export-related transactions and have increasingly involved cooperation with the enforcement authorities of other countries. This session will provide an overview of the primary U.S. export and trade sanctions laws, discuss important recent developments in this area, and offer suggested approaches for ensuring compliance with these laws.
