Our guide on how we’re trying to redefine the future of Disbursement Accounting.
Against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine, this advisory is intended to provide our customers with a brief roundup update on developments we have seen in the insurance rules and policy coverages of P&I clubs in response to the heightened environment surrounding sanctions.
The complexity of international sanctions regimes is impacting several global industries. In the maritime industry, many insurers and underwriters are seeking to limit sanctions risks through the implementation of programs that drive compliance with global sanctions regimes.
Every port call is screened, including every appointment, every proforma disbursement account (PDA), and every final disbursement account (FDA).
DA-Desk’s solutions are supported by a 60+ team of Compliance researchers, analysts and sanctions professionals monitoring global trading and regulatory developments 24/7 to support your business.
