Seminar: Trade Controls; current challenges and critical issues from a US and EU perspective, 20 June, The Hague

Recent international developments could have broad implications for economic sanctions and export control regulation, posing a whole range of new challenges for European businesses. Will the Trump administration stick to or break with established US trade control policies and what could be the implications for our trade with Russia and Iran? Can we predict the consequences of a ‘hard Brexit’ and will it be possible for EU companies to anticipate? How do trade controls relate to the IT & Communications sector and what are the implications for when it comes to cloud computing, data exchange, cyber-surveillance or cryptography?

The seminar specifically aims at pinpointing important developments and showing the practical consequences for day-to-day business in the field of economic sanctions and export controls, both from a US and EU law perspective. The focus will be, inter alia, on the following topics:

  • The new US administration on trade controls;
  • The recast of the EU Dual-use Regulation (an update);
  • Trade controls and the IT & Communications sector;
  • Brexit and its implications for trade controls (an update);
  • The (uneasy) relationship between US trade controls and EU data protection rules;
  • The challenges posed by increasingly multi-facetted compliance requirements.
