Over the last week, the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, and several other countries and organizations have imposed severe and immediate sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. Among these actions are new export controls covering a broad range of goods and services, including equipment and components used in electronics, telecommunications, and aerospace. The wide-ranging sanctions seek to constrain the development of Russia’s military-industrial complex and limit its access to cutting-edge technology.

IPC recommends that its members review and understand the new export controls to ensure full compliance with them. Below are links to information about the sanctions and exports controls that were imposed by the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union, but many other countries have imposed them as well. Please let us know if you have any questions or information that shed more light on the situation.
