Seminar: Trade Controls; current challenges and critical issues from a US and EU perspective, Thursday 14 June 2018, The Hague

In recent weeks, the international business community has witnessed the withdrawal of the United States from the Iran deal, as well as a U.S. policy change towards Russia. These measures impact European businesses, causing the European Union to react and update its own policies. Moreover, Dutch authorities have increased enforcement on export controls and sanctions over the last years.

These developments serve as a reminder of the risks related to export controls and present serious challenges for the transportation & logistics sector, especially in a transit hub such as The Netherlands. This calls for an update on trade controls from both a US and an EU perspective.

This seminar specifically aims at providing (i) a clear understanding of relevant US and EU trade controls and their enforcement and (ii) a better insight in existing pitfalls and risks by addressing topical case scenarios. Attention will be paid, inter alia, to:

  • The impact of recent changes in US Sanctions (Russia, Iran,...) and the European reaction (Blocking Regulations) for European businesses;
  • The challenges and critical issues for parties involved in international transactions;
  • Recent Dutch enforcement cases and its implications for the supply chain, typically in The Netherlands as an important transit hub;
  • The consequences of strict enforcement for the supply chain.
