Economic Sanctions Resources
BAFT’s sanctions resources hub is a collection of links and documents to various resources across numerous international jurisdictions that can help you and your organization manage economic sanctions impacting the global transaction banking industry.
BAFT Resources on Russian Sanctions
BAFT is committed to providing details on economic sanctions and export controls enacted by the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom (UK), the United States (U.S.), and other international jurisdictions in response to Russia’s violations of international law and the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
We encourage members to actively monitor this resources hub as sanctions could change on a frequent basis, and we will endeavor to keep our community updated on changes that impact our industry.
As you review the sanctions and export controls we encourage you to send your questions and items for clarification to [email protected]. We will consolidate member questions and engage with the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on behalf of the industry.
