This webinar will focus on the nuts and bolts of the Commerce Department blacklists: The Denied Party, Entity and Unverified Lists.

The speaker will review the policy bases for these lists, the restrictions they impose on the listed parties, the compliance obligations they create, what to do if a company learns that it has not complied with these compliance obligations, how to conduct and manage investigations related to these violations, and navigating the process for removal from these lists. The main points of emphasis will be the increased importance of these lists in this era of global trade enforcement, identifying specific tips for compliance with these rules, and identifying common pitfalls or traps for the unwary in this area. 

This webinar will cover:

  • What each of these lists is designed to accomplish on a policy level;
  • What restrictions they impose on U.S. and non-U.S. persons;
  • How to comply with obligations imposed by these lists;
  • What to do if a company learns that it has not complied with obligations related to these lists;
  • Conducting investigations related to potential violations of obligations imposed by these lists;
  • Defending enforcement actions related to potential violations of the list-related requirements; and
  • Navigating the process of removal from the lists.

  • In-house Counsel
  • Outside Compliance Counsel

The webinar will be presented through PowerPoint slides and will include live video and commentary from Timothy P. O’Toole, a member of the law firm of Miller & Chevalier Chartered, in Washington D.C., and the leader of its White Collar Defense Practice Group. Recognized as one of the nation’s leading international trade lawyers by Chambers USA, Legal 500, Who’s Who Legal, and Global Investigations Review, Tim has represented targets of and subjects of government enforcement actions for over two decades, and has in the past decade focused on defending matters arising under the export controls and U.S. sanctions laws.
