Sanctions are an essential tool used by governments to advance foreign policy objectives and address national security concerns. They can be imposed on individuals, entities, or entire countries, and can restrict trade, financial transactions, and other economic activities. Non-compliance with sanctions can result in severe consequences, including hefty fines, reputational damage, and legal penalties.
Export controls are regulations imposed by governments to restrict the export of goods, technology, software, and services that have the potential to harm national security or foreign policy interests.
