At every level, the scale and pace of change across all high-impact sanctions regimes continues to grow, and with it the importance of operational sanctions resilience.

This is underlined by increased transatlantic divergence, as well as the intensification and  expansion across the international sanctions landscape.

Part of the wider Economic Crime team, the UK Finance International Sanctions Programme encompasses a wide-range of sanctions-related activities. Through our bi-monthly sanctions panel we work extensively with our members on mechanisms to improve the effectiveness of sanctions compliance and undertake significant engagement with EU and US counterparts.

We also produce briefing papers, consultations, white papers and blogs, bringing together leading industry, think-tank and governmental experts through webinars, roundtables, and conferences. We engage with international organisations, such as the UN, and we chair the European Banking Federation sanctions expert group.

We additionally monitor global sanctions regimes, for example Iran, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba, to keep aware of new developments and how these may impact our members.
