CYA on KYC: Employing Reasonable Due Diligence for Global Trade Compliance

April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$25.00

Exporters face ever-increasing end use and end user due diligence requirements for effective management of global trade compliance. Restricted end uses, significant expansion of restricted parties, broadening Military End Use rules, the OFAC 50% rule, and increased emphasis on illegal diversion are just a few reasons why due diligence is critical. Moreover, federal authorities continue to expand Red Flag listings and Know Your Customer (KYC) guidance, creating additional due diligence concerns for exporters. It is no wonder, therefore, that many exporters find themselves falling down a due diligence rabbithole in trying to achieve compliance, with screening protocols, end user statements, independent research efforts and more. On top of that, due diligence efforts don’t always yield clear-cut results, which can create unease for many.

This webinar will review due diligence best practices for exporters, with an emphasis on employing reasonable protocols for achieving compliance. The webinar will address due diligence in challenging markets, such as China, and will discuss clearance of transactions in cases involving screening ambiguity or red flags.

Join us for this practical program that will help you to confidently fulfill your due diligence obligations while maintaining manageable processes and achieving peace-of-mind in export transactions.
