The world of trade regulations is changing every day and in this global business environment, you need to understand current events that shape trade relations and the role that trade agreements have on international business.  It is also important to have an overview of the embargoes, sanctions, and trade restrictions that may impact your business.  At the time of this writing, there are 30 nations and 2 regions subject to some form of embargo, sanction or trade restriction, all of which create risk with international transactions.  In this seminar, we will explore trade controls in all forms, including direct and indirect, unilateral, limited, targeted, and comprehensive sanctions programs.  We will explain the difference between an embargo and a sanction, while summarizing the trade restrictions under the United Nations Security Council, U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and others.  If a destination is embargoed or sanctioned, that does not necessarily mean that you are forever banned from conducting business there; it only means that you must have an export authorization, exemption, or license and this seminar will get you started.  It is an exciting time to be involved in international trade, and we want to share our excitement with you.
