Economic sanctions and export controls are restrictions set by governments on a wide-range of transactions involving specific countries, regions, entities, or persons. The United States has been playing a significant role in developing a multilateral national security response to Russia's military actions and additional aggressions in Ukraine. Wiley’s Sanctions and Export Controls Resource Center provides regular updates on the latest U.S. government restrictions that impact American and global businesses. Contact our Sanctions and Export Controls Team for any inquiries.
