27 March 2019
View Debevoise Update
The U.S. Government has issued updated guidance to the petroleum, shipping and maritime insurance industries regarding evasion of sanctions by the governments of North Korea and Syria.
Building on previous versions, the advisories describe practices used to conceal the origin and destination of illicit cargo, including ship-to-ship transfers and the disabling or manipulating of a ship’s Automatic Identification System.
The advisories now recommend best practices to maritime insurers, oil traders and others for detecting and avoiding potentially noncompliant transactions.
