The UK Parliament passed the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act in 2018 to get the UK sanctions regime ready for when the UK leaves the European Union. The number and type of businesses who are subject to UK sanctions rules have rapidly expanded, as have the penalties that can be given for those who breach the rules, from monetary penalties to criminal prosecution. In this webinar, Director of Course Development Nick Henderson and Director of Best Practice Gary Yantin explored the implications of the new law and give guidance on how to comply.
The webinar covered
- The consolidated sanctions list and how to use it
- How to keep track of sanctions imposed on countries
- How Brexit affects sanctions regulations
- Dealing with a target match when using the consolidated sanctions list
- A short review on how to use the new Sanctions course
- Answering any questions you may have
