International Trade Compliance Materials

Trade Compliance Handbook

The Thompson Coburn Trade Compliance Handbook—a useful tool for corporate general counsel, as well as compliance, customs and audit personnel—provides an overview of international trade regulatory compliance issues and related terms. It includes a comprehensive and easy-to-use dictionary of more than 175 trade terms, including those related to customs compliance, export controls, country of origin, foreign investment, international finance and immigration, as well as the many trade-related acronyms, such as CBP, ITAR, EAR, DDTC, OFAC, FCPA and more. There is also an index to help quickly identify important regulations. Check it out and let us know if there are any customs- and export-related-terms that you would like us to add. 




Checklists of Foreign Countries Subject to Sanctions

The Checklists of Foreign Countries Subject to Sanctions includes charts of U.S. and EU-imposed trade restrictions affecting the import/export of goods and definitions of the various restrictions. Although there is considerable overlap between the U.S. and EU checklists, the restrictions applicable to a particular country may differ significantly. Sanctions mandated by UN Security Council resolutions are also outlined as well as sanctions implemented by certain other countries.
