Governments and international organizations use sanctions as foreign policy tools to exert pressure on designated targets to force a change in behavior. Sanctions can take many forms – from geographic and thematic sanctions to asset freezes, travel bans and arms embargoes.

New administrations, new regulations and ever-changing watchlists: these and other factors are the ongoing challenges compliance professionals face to ensure sanctions compliance.

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions regularly analyzes sanctions data from key regulators to identify trends and changes in policy. Our Sanctions Pulse infographic series outlines key changes in sanctions and watchlist data by number and focus areas, and gives insights into where regulators are focusing their attention and how companies need to respond.

Why is sanctions compliance important?

Sanctions compliance ensures businesses stay on the right side of the law and do not engage with sanctioned entities or individuals - it should form the cornerstone of any compliance program. The LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Sanctions Pulse series is a comprehensive overview of the watchlist changes from major regulators, empowering compliance professions to understand trends and implement a sanctions compliance program suited to the everchanging regulatory environment.

Will the situation in Ukraine, which marked its first anniversary in February, continue to drive sanctions activity? What other geopolitical issues are emerging?
