Embargo checks for all types of embargoes

Embargoes do not only refer to prohibitions on exporting military goods to certain states (so-called arms embargoes). Depending on the objective of an embargo, measures may also affect other economic sectors or apply to individual political groups as well as individuals. Embargoes are generally economic sanctions that restrict or even completely prohibit global trade with affected states, groups, or individuals.

Running embargo checks on the countries involved in your business transactions is an indispensable part of export controls – together with the screening of your business partners and checks on the nature of your goods as well their end-use at the customer. Different authorities around the world issue embargo regulations and country lists. These change frequently – in both the scope of embargoes and the countries they affect.

What are embargoes?
