Event Synopsis:

On Dec. 31, the President signed into law new legislation that provides harsher financial sanctions against Iran to weaken Tehran economically and cripple its pursuit of nuclear weapons. In February, the President issued an Executive Order which implements these new sanctions. These new provisions will not only strengthen current sanctions but will also expand the reach to affect foreign financial institutions that do business with Iran's Central Bank. Additional legislation against Iran is currently pending in Congress which may expand sanctions even further. This webinar will address the following:

• What are the key provisions of the new law and what are the effective dates?
• What is the relationship of these new provisions to the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions Accountability and Divestment Act? What companies will be affected?
• How will the sanctions affect foreign companies doing business with Iran? And how will they affect U.S. banks?
• What activities are among the list of activities that could be sanctioned?
• What can companies do to protect their business against costly investigations and possible penalties?
• Steps to make sure your company complies with the ever evolving patchwork quilt of Iranian sanctions laws and regulations
