Sanctions Are Voluntary Agreements Between Two Countries To Restrict Trade
Secondary sanctions are restrictions imposed by the United States, which are not intended to prevent the United States. people doing certain activities (for example. B activities in the energy, military or navigation sectors in Iran and in the energy sector in Venezuela). Under such authorities, the United States may impose sanctions on non-U.S. authorities through OFAC. persons who deal with such sanctioned parties. U.S. sanctions apply to all U.S. citizens (including dual citizens), their permanent residence («green card»), any entity incorporated under U.S. law, any person established in the United States or anyone involved in activity in the United States.
This includes all employees, officers or directors of an organization that is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, regardless of physical location. Where a country/region or party is subject to U.S. economic sanctions, the United States, without exception, may only engage in activities with the country, region or party subject to such sanctions, either under a specific license (which requires an application for a LICENSE from OFAC) or a general license (either by regulation or by an administrative publication by OFAC).

In the United Kingdom, the Export Control Organization (ECO) is responsible for licensing the export of controlled goods and products which, although not subject to general control, may be covered by a country-by-country embargo.
