The WorldECR Export Controls & Sanctions Forum 2019

3-4 Oct 2019

8 Fenchurch Place, London, EC3

Our programme of sessions this year reflects all the major export control/sanctions developments and trend directions that have emerged or accelerated since then. This is a challenging and rapidly changing area of trade regulation and keeping ahead of the pack adds weight to the capabilities of trade compliance professionals as business enablers.

This year, high on the list of concerns are

  • l The return of big-ticket OFAC settlements against non-US companies;
  • l The ramping up of sanctions against Venezuela – but Maduro remains in office;
  • l Continuing uncertainty in Asia as Kim and Trump fail to move forward on sanctions and denuclearisation…
  • l China relations deteriorate in the wake of ZTE, Huawei fears, and a trade war;
  • l Further divergence between the United States and its international partners on Iran;
  • l And, dare we mention, the all-consuming, ever-fatiguing topic of BREXIT?

Of course, the Forum is not only a place for discussion of the impact on trade of geopolitical developments – there’s enormous benefit to be gained from shared experiences in practical issues and questions, and, as always, the presentations will not disappoint. This year, we will be able to profit from experience and insight into l Investigations: allocating roles, working with third parties, managing costs; l How and why (the real benefits) to audit your export control function;

  • l Factoring national security considerations into corporate activities like divestment and mergers;
  • l Understanding your place in the defence supply chain (even if you’re not a defence company);
  • l Translating EU ICP guidelines to ‘work’ for your company;
  • l Cross-border investigations: allocating roles, working with third parties, managing costs.

The WorldECR London Forum is the place to share thoughts upon the fast-changing world of strategic trade compliance and to learn and discuss with speakers from organisations with a global view, leading lawyers and experts from international institutions.

It’s a great time and place to network, where the event space is comfortable and state of the art. As in previous years, you can enjoy an optional dinner on the first evening of the Forum, following a drinks reception. To date, this relaxed and informal dinner for speakers, panelists and delegates alike, held in a local restaurant, has proven a great success. It is optional – there is an additional charge – but it is always a fun end to a long day and a great opportunity to build new contacts.

Key dates and offers
Please allow me to draw your attention to the following:

  • l If you register by 1 September you can save £200
  • l Additional delegates from the same organisation can save an additional £100
  • l WorldECR subscribers and past Forum attendees can claim a 15% discount.

The WorldECR Export Controls & Sanctions Forum 2019

15-16 Oct 2019

The Offices of Hogan Lovells, Washington DC, USA

We’re back in London and DC in October this year, and what a busy (and challenging) 15 months it will have been since the 2018 Forum last June. Since then we’ve seen l The return of big-ticket OFAC settlements

  • l The ramping up of sanctions against Venezuela;
  • l Further divergence between the United States and its international partners on Iran;
  • l Reactivation of Title III of Helms-Burton, calling time on Cuba détente;
  • l Attempts to get to grips with export controls on emerging technologiesl China relations deteriorate in the wake of ZTE, the Huawei story, and trade war;
  • l Continuing uncertainty in Asia as presidents Kim and Trump fail to move forward on sanctions and denuclearisation.

Of course, the WorldECR Forum is not only a place for discussion of the impact on trade of geopolitical developments – there’s enormous benefit to be gained from shared experiences in practical issues and questions, such as:

  • l The interplay between compliance and corporate reputation: What’s the dynamic? Where are the risks?
  • l Ensuring compliant exports when a non-US entity is the buyer and the seller;
  • l Appropriate immediate responses to wind-down notices (Don’t panic. But don’t relax!);
  • l Investigations: allocating roles, working with third parties, managing costs;
  • l Auditing your export control function;
  • l Factoring national security considerations into corporate activities like divestment and mergers.

The WorldECR Forum in DC is the place to share thoughts upon the fast-changing world of strategic trade compliance and learn and discuss, with speakers from Rockwell Automation, Marsh & McLennan, Textron, Walmart, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Canadian Border Services Agency, as well as with leading lawyers from around the world and experts from international institutions.

Past attendees of WorldECR Forum events know that they provide an unparalleled opportunity to make contacts, learn from peers and mentors, share ideas and concerns, broaden horizons – and take the lead in the increasingly demanding and complex domain of sanctions and export control compliance.

As in previous years, you can enjoy an optional dinner on the first evening of the Forum, following the drinks reception. To date, this relaxed and informal dinner for speakers, panellists and delegates, held in a local restaurant, has proven a great success. It is optional – there is an additional charge – but it is always a fun end to a long day and a great opportunity to build new contacts.

Key dates and offers

  • l If you register by 1 September you can save $300
  • l Additional delegates from the same organisation can save an additional $200
