Virtual Master Class – Recent developments in EU, US and Chinese economic sanctions and export controls

December 3, 2020

Geopolitical developments continue to affect international trade, as governments increasingly resort to economic sanctions and export controls, not only to promote their foreign policy goals, but to protect their national security and economic edge as well. At the same time, regulatory authorities are intensifying their supervision and enforcement efforts, compelling businesses to match their compliance measures and assurances to this trend.


In this Master Class, Marnix Somsen and Marlies Heemskerk-de Waard will discuss recent developments in international economic sanctions and export controls, including with regard to:


  • EU and US sanctions against Russia and Iran;
  • the scope and effect of the EU Blocking Statute;
  • China’s new Export Control Law and Unreliable Entity List;
  • US export restrictions targeting China and their effect on non-US companies;
  • foreign direct investment controls; and
  • Brexit.
