Anti-Corruption Report

In this article, authors Joshua Drew and Laura Deegan discuss the current state of play regarding sanctions and export control enforcement, including the government’s developing priorities, and make five concrete suggestions on how to best stand up or strengthen an existing compliance program making efficient use of existing resources. "Many companies are working to strengthen their compliance programs to account for the increased sanctions and export control risk," the authors wrote. "As they do so, companies should look for ways to leverage their existing ABC or wider financial crime compliance program to incorporate new, or strengthen existing, sanctions and export control-related compliance measures. Such synergies can drive both efficiency and effectiveness."
