    On August 2, 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). The new law, which is viewed to have profound impacts on anti-corruption compliance and global supply chains, provides for additional sanctions on Iran, Russia, and North Korea.

    The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) also recently intensified sanctions against Venezuela by prohibiting certain transactions and financing related to the Venezuelan government and state-owned oil and natural gas company Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. and by blocking the property of, and prohibiting transactions with, Venezuelan government officials.

    Listen as a panel of distinguished sanctions professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with the latest and emerging issues about the new U.S. sanctions on Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Venezuela. Speakers, among other things, will analyze the most important provisions in CAATSA, and its direct impact on affected firms and companies. Speakers will also offer effective compliance strategies for related businesses.
