Q8. If a company imports goods subject to an import ban is this company a sanctioned entity?

06 Jun 2022

An importer is in violation of sanctions if they import products covered by sanctions or import products produced from an entity covered by sanctions.
The importer would not be considered a sanctioned entity; but they would be considered violating sanctions.
If a company produces goods that are subject to an import ban, then that company has violated sanctions.
