Export Compliance & Regulations

In this new series, Fred Dons, Director at Deutsche Bank Amsterdam, will cover everything today’s credit professional needs to know to stay on top of the fast-changing regulatory landscape, keeping their company – and bottom line – protected.  Each session includes an in-depth case study, making the information directly applicable.

17 March OFAC, UN & EU Embargos
22 March Dual Use Goods
19 April Bank instruments Embargo, Blacklists
10 May FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) & Trade Based Money Laundering

Keeping pace with export compliance requirements is an ongoing and time consuming challenge; regulations and restricted or denied party lists are constantly changing as are export documentations rules and formats in every country. Corporate compliance is a critical aspect of credit management and the failure to strictly comply with rules and regulations lead to major difficulties in collecting accounts receivable – which increase DSO and place a strain on working capital. Credit departments must have the knowledge and tools to successfully navigate the choppy international waters of export compliance.

Highlights of each session:

- When are the trade instruments subject to which embargo rule (OFAC, UN, EU, other)?
- What other checks are being done and how does this potentially impact your business?
- What does a credit professional need to verify before presenting documents to a bank?
- Case study
