Description

The Biden administration has taken multiple actions related to sanctions and export controls in its first months in office, including new sanctions imposed on Russia announced on Apr. 15, 2021. The administration has continued to add new sanctions against Chinese and Hong Kong officials connected with human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region. It is revisiting the Iran nuclear deal, resulting in further changes to the U.S. sanctions landscape.

The administration has also taken actions to further safeguard U.S. technology, including through Commerce Department rules to implement the new ICTS supply chain transaction review regime. In April 2021, the Commerce Department also imposed additional export control restrictions on Chinese companies deemed to use U.S. technology in building supercomputers for Chinese weapons development.

Listen as our authoritative panel of international trade attorneys examines these and other key sanctions and export control developments since President Biden took office. The panel will discuss recent sanctions related to China, Burma, Russia, and other countries. The panel will also review updates on the implementation of the ICTS supply chain review regime and how it may impact industry players in the future. The panel will also discuss enforcement actions and anticipated regulatory and enforcement trends for the remainder of the year.
