The Potential Effects of Brexit on U.K. Sanctions Law and How Compliance Officers Can Prepare For the Switch
Date: Thursday, Sept 13, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM NYC
The U.K. currently derives its power to implement sanctions from European law, regardless of whether they originated at the U.N., E.U., or OSCE. Since June 2016’s ‘Brexit’ decision, when the U.K. voted to leave the E.U., it has been unclear how the U.K. will implement sanctions policy after the divorce.
The new Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act, which received Royal Assent earlier this year, provides the U.K. powers to impose, update, and lift sanctions and AML regimes after the U.K. leaves the E.U. in March 2019. But will the U.K. sanctions landscape stay the same, or is it likely to change drastically?
In this SanctionsAlert.com webinar, you will learn:
- What powers will be derived from the new U.K. Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act and how this will change (or not change) the sanctions landscape; and
- What the effects of Brexit will be on U.K. Sanctions Law and how compliance officers can best prepare for the switch.
