What you need to know about Export Control Sanctions on Russia

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) imposed expansive export controls against Russia & Belarus covering both U.S. origin products and numerous items made abroad. Sanctions were effective immediately, therefore no grace period was granted. This one-hour course will outline the new export controls and what exporters, re-exporters, and in-country transferors need to know.


We will discuss sanctions imposed by the BIS and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on Russia. Our focus will be on five areas:

  • BIS country-wide export controls
  • BIS sectoral sanctions
  • BIS military end use/end user controls
  • OFAC sectoral sanctions
  • OFAC financial and trade sanctions.

Points we will cover include:

  • Identifying products subject to the February 24 BIS sanctions rule.
  • Restrictions on sales to military end users and military end uses
  • Application of the new Russia foreign direct product rule and the savings clause
  • Scope of BIS Sectoral Sanctions
  • Scope of OFAC Sectoral Sanctions, Directives and General Licenses
  • Russian Harmful Foreign Activities sanctions
  • BIS and OFAC prohibitions regarding Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk

Why attend
