Read Frequently Asked Questions

In this training program, attendees will learn from an established customs and international trade law expert about recent developments regarding U.S. laws and regulations addressing the expansion of trade, commerce and business opportunities in Cuba.

"Cuba Sanctions: All You Need To Know" - This course is approved by NCBFAA (The National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, Inc). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 1 CCS/CES credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

On September 18, 2015, the US Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) respectively amended the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to further ease the US embargo against Cuba and authorize certain business activities with Cuba in targeted sectors.

This is the second major round of amendments in the past year to the CACR and Cuba-specific provisions of the EAR with the first OFAC and BIS action taking place in January 2015,. According to a Treasury Department fact sheet, the Obama Administration is “further delivering on the new direction toward US relations with Cuba that President Obama laid out last December.”

This session will focus on the amendments and the intentional reduction for the need for specific licensing for activities in certain sectors that the administration has targeted for sanctions relief, such as telecommunications, internet-based services, transportation/travel and tourism, export-import, legal services, educational activities, commercial and financial services, to name a few.
