Webinar content: The impact on a company of breaking sanctions, or even being perceived to have broken sanctions, is often severe and can put the company out of business, effectively shutting it out of the financial markets. Recent guidance from the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) is significant in that it represents an attempt by US and UK governments to set out the standards by which the maritime industry will be judged if they are linked to sanctions breaking.
The Swedish Club has joined forces with Hill Dickinson to host an online seminar to assist both Club members and others in the shipping community to navigate this complex and often opaque area safely.
Sanctions and their Consequences: How to Navigate Sanctions Due Diligence will focus on the importance of due diligence and risk assessment to any company likely to be affected by sanctions, exploring the impact of the OFAC and OFSI guidance, including the reach of sanctions, assessing counterparty activity and trade sanctions risks, developing sanctions compliance programmes and procedures, and contractual precautions.
