Sanctioned persons: get to know your customers and suppliers
30-04-2022

As you know, the European Union has adopted several packages of restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in the wake of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine and restrictive measures against the Republic of Belarus in the light of the situation in Belarus. All these measures must be effectively implemented by the competent authorities and the EU economic operators. Let us discuss one of the measures - directly and indirectly sanctioned persons and how to identify them so that they do not appear among customers or suppliers.

Kaliningrad – Russia transit: are there any special simplifications?
17-04-2022

Due to the war in Ukraine, the Kaliningrad Oblast is getting increased attention. We receive questions about the ‘Kaliningrad transit‘: whether there are any simplifications for the transportation of goods from Russia to Kaliningrad and vice versa or exemptions from sanctions? The exemptions have been introduced in the fifth EU sanctions package against Russia. But let’s start with an overview of some historical events.

Tarptautinės sankcijos Rusijai ir Baltarusijai: teisinis reguliavimas ir verslo rizikos valdymas
10-04-2022

Tarptautinės sankcijos – privalomos kiekvienam, ir ne tik ES įvedami ribojimai. Verslui tenka susidurti ir su kitų šalių, pavyzdžiui, JAV, ekstrateritorialaus poveikio sankcijomis. Kaip valdyti riziką? Apžvelkime ribojimus sandorio šalims, jų patikrą viešai prieinamuose sąrašuose, sankcijų įtaką finansinėms operacijoms, apėjimo rizikos valdymą ir atsakomybę, teismų praktiką ir kokias reikėtų numatyti prekių pirkimo-pardavimo ar kitų sutarčių sąlygas, kad įvedus sankcijas, įtakojančias sandorį, būtų apsisaugota nuo neigiamų pasekmių.

What exporters should know about licensing barriers?
03-04-2022

Due to the non-transparent import licensing requirements in many countries, such as Turkey, India, Malaysia, Brazil, and Argentina, to mention a few, exporters are denied trade opportunities, which these days are especially important for those who lost their export markets after Russia invaded Ukraine. The article introduces basic information on automatic and non-automatic licensing and provides practical examples of some non-transparent licensing regimes worldwide that must be considered when choosing new export markets.
