Avoiding the Risks of Antiboycott Violations
Item SKU: BOYCOTTCD2012
If your firm is among the many U.S. companies that are seeing major growth in your exports to the Middle East, then you know the risks you face dealing with the Arab League boycott of Israel and the double set of complex and burdensome Antiboycott Regulations enforced by the Bureau of Industry and Security and the Treasury Department. Even if you avoid penalties, you still must establish and maintain a costly compliance program to prevent even inadvertent acceptance of boycott conditions in tenders, letters of credit and contracts and to report boycott-related requests to BIS and the IRS. This timely 90-minute audio-conference will provide you with a basic introduction to the requirements of both BIS and Treasury antiboycott rules and new options you can use to avoid violations when you receive a request to comply with the boycott. Our featured speakers are Ned Weant, Director of the Office of Antiboycott Compliance in the Bureau of Industry and Security of the Commerce Department, and David Joy, Senior Counsel in the Office of the General Counsel of the Treasury Department.
