About this Webinar

The United States has implemented Antiboycott Laws, under the Export Administration Regulations, which require U.S. firms to refuse to participate in foreign boycotts that the United States does not sanction. Companies that do not comply with the Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR) antiboycott provisions can be subject to penalties under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of up to $250,000 per violation or twice the value of the transaction.

Covered in this session:

  • A basic understanding of jurisdiction and regulatory applicability
  • Types of antiboycott requests and language exceptions
  • Prohibitions
  • Evasion
  • Reporting requirements and exceptions

Attend this webinar to be aware of how antiboycott regulations apply to your business and maintain a solid export compliance program to avoid cash penalties.
