Santa's Restricted Party Screening Could Cost Him this Christmas - Could Yours?

Posted by Mandy Hyde

With the recent changes to export restrictions and sanctions around the globe, Santa may have trouble delivering his presents this Christmas. Although Kris Kringle and a majority of exporters already realize what's at stake if they commit export violations, a recent survey found that only 53% of exporters have a full Export Compliance Program (ECP) in place. For many companies, the variety of components involved with implementing a full ECP can be daunting. One way to begin the process of building a complete ECP is to implement a robust, automated screening process with restricted party screening and sanction capabilities.The recurring revisions to export restrictions and sanctions from governments around the world make it challenging for any company to still be manually screening. The United States, especially, has been busy trying to make updates to exporting policies as the Trump administration re-evaluates Obama-era trade tactics. How sure are you that your company's compliance process is keeping you out of harm's way?

Global Trade Alert: New Cuba Restricted Party List Released

Posted by Mandy Hyde

In June 2017, President Trump announced forthcoming changes to the Cuba sanctions program in his "National Security Presidential Memorandum Strengthening the Policy of the United States Toward Cuba" ("Cuba NSPM"). These changes reflected modifications to be made to the broader Cuba reform initiated by former President Obama in January 2015 - much of which is still in effect today. While a surprising announcement in itself, US citizens and residents (luckily) were not subject to the restrictions until the policy was shaped into official regulations.
