About this webinar

With the aftermath of COVID still playing out at the beginning of January 2022, many would have hoped for a more predictable spring. The conflict in Ukraine, and the resulting ramp-up of sanctions of both individuals and companies, put paid to that idea.

The Economic Crime Act in March soon followed. Amongst other changes, firms can now be held liable even where they have no knowledge or reasonable cause to suspect that a transaction they’re party to is in breach of sanctions. And with the SRA announcing a significant rise in enforcement fines, staying on top of rule changes has never been more pressing. 

In this discussion, we cover:

  • Recent regulatory changes

  • How these changes can impact your business

  • Strategies and guidance for staying compliant now and into the future

  • Live Q&A
