NECC Red Alert – Exporting High Risk Goods
The purpose of this Alert is to provide information to businesses on common techniques suspected to be in use to evade sanctions on the export of high-risk goods, which Russia is using on the battlefield in Ukraine. The primary audience for this alert is the financial sector, including banks, credit card operators, foreign exchange dealers and non-bank payment service providers. It may also be relevant to business sectors outside the regulated sector for anti-money laundering, in particular customs brokers, freight forwarders and other transportation and logistics providers.
