All international projects need to be in compliance with U.S. laws and those of the host country. The regulatory environment in the U.S. and abroad is becoming more focused on foreign activities, seeking greater transparency into their scope and substance.
In the U.S., a range of federal agencies are charged with enhancing transparency and increasing enforcement of existing legislation. Enforcement is also being stepped up, with large penalties for failure to file on a range of federally-mandated information filings. The pace of new legislative activity around international transactions continues to be significant.
Major U.S. regulations that govern the conduct of our international activities include:
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
- U.S. Anti-Boycott Laws
- Office of Foreign Assets Control
- Export Controls
- Import Controls
The above list is non-exhaustive for the U.S., and the government(s) of a foreign sponsor will have different and possibly more onerous regulatory requirements. The ICC is here to provide guidance on the specifics of these regulations. Please contact us so that we can discuss how they may impact your project.
