Sanctions across your supply chain

Increasing corporate risks


Following Western sanctions of Russia, many companies have abandoned investments and trade with Russia. But there is still high risk of involuntary trade via suppliers, daugther companies, Internet trade, parallel imports, or third countries. Many European countries have tightened legal liabilities and penalties for violations of sanctions, including via third countries. In addition, violations of sanctions may involve a substantial risk to reputation.

Corisk tracks in detail all Western trade with Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union. On a monthly basis, Western companies have increased exports to certain third countries by 700-800 million EUR / USD. This volume is increasing, and represents goods that may be re-exported to Russia with or without the will and knowledge of the Western exporter. Similar risks relate to direct and indirect imports. This takes place within virtually all industries.

Even trade in goods that are not the object of sanctions, involve risk that suppliers, agents, importers, or partner companies include sanctioned individuals, or that trade is actually being conducted with a shell company for military or dual-use value chains. As late as November, US authorities black-listed companies in Taiwan, Armenia, France and Switzerland, who had sold electronics to a shell company of Russian military industry.

Our complete insight helps your company assure sanction compliance, avoid involuntary trade with Russia, and protect your reputation.
