Sanctions against Iran are constantly expanding to address new concerns. The record-breaking June 11 $619 million ING Bank settlement evidences the importance of sanctions compliance. The array of new programs -- covering financial services, communications equipment and diversions -- creates tremendous compliance challenges for U.S. and foreign companies. This webinar will explain the new sanctions provisions and provide the information you need to make sure your company is protected against costly investigations and possible penalties. Among the topics covered in this webinar are the following:

Financial Sanctions

On Dec. 31, 2011 the President signed into law new legislation that provides far-reaching financial sanctions against Iran designed to weaken Iran economically and cripple its pursuit of nuclear weapons. In February, the President issued an Executive Order implementing these new sanctions. The webinar will discuss:

In March 2012, the Office of Foreign Assets Control provided guidelines encouraging the exchange of personal communications in Iran over the internet. However, on April 23, 2012, the President issued an Executive Order restricting the export of communications equipment to Iran and Syria that is used for human rights abuses, including cell phone tracking and internet monitoring. The webinar will explain:

New Penalties on Foreign Sanctions Evaders
