The Australian Sanctions Office (ASO) is pleased to invite you to the Sanctions Virtual Information Session on 29 April, 2021.


As an overview, this session will aim to cover:

  • an introduction to the sanctions regimes that the ASO implements under Australia’s sanctions laws and an explanation of some of the measures;

  • circumstances in which businesses may be able to apply for a permit to authorise an activity that would otherwise breach a sanctions measure;

  • sanctions offences and their associated penalties; and

  • what to do if you are engaging with a country, individual or entity which may be subject to Australian sanctions.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions of the ASO.
