Recorded Webinar: The post-Brexit UK sanctions regime – how to stay safe and compliant

11 March 2021

When the Brexit transition period came to an end on 31 December 2020, a new sanctions regime was introduced in the UK under legislation set out in the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (aka the Sanctions Act). The regime is fundamentally different to that of the EU, requiring financial institutions to rethink their response to sanctions regulation and change the way they source and manage data for compliance.

This webinar will discuss the UK sanctions legislation, review the new list of sanctions against 30 regimes published by the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), and discuss changes to elements of the sanctions process including designation, licenses, and blocking regulations.

It will also provide detailed guidance on how to source and manage data required by the UK sanctions regime and offer advice on how to achieve compliance in an increasingly complex global sanctions environment.

Listen to the webinar to find out more about:

  • The requirements and coverage of the UK sanctions regime
  • How the UK regime differs and is similar to those of the EU and US
  • Approaches to ensuring your organisation is compliant on a global basis
  • How to solve issues of data sourcing, categorisation, system settling and custody
  • The benefits beyond compliance of successful sanctions operations
