Iran Sanctions: High Noon Approaches
September 26, 11 am -noon ET Iran Sanctions: High Noon Approaches This webinar will focus on the re-imposition of the core U.S. nuclear-related sanctions against Iran following the expiration of the "wind-down" period on November 4. Such sanctions will include a broad range of restrictions directed at non-U.S. companies doing business with Iran, including restrictions targeted at the energy, shipping, shipbuilding, and financial sectors, as well as a nearly comprehensive prohibition of trade with Iran by non-U.S. subsidiaries of U.S. companies. This will be in addition to sanctions the United States re-imposed in August, which also will be discussed. Looming over these issues for EU companies will be the EU Blocking Statute, which prohibits compliance with the re-imposed sanctions, putting companies in quite a bind. What are the sanctions that will again be in effect? How can companies navigate their withdrawal from Iran? What activity will still be permissible? How do EU companies cope with the Blocking Statute? Tune in to find out.
