Katun Export Policy

Katun’s policy on the export and re-export of products to destinations or countries that are subject to U.S. embargoes or sanctions.

Unless authorized by the United States Government, Katun Corporation prohibits the export and reexport of Katun products, and the provision of Katun services, to destinations or individuals subject to United States embargoes or trade sanctions.

Embargoed Countries

The United States currently maintains embargoes, which prohibits trade with the following countries:

  • Cuba
  • Iran
  • North Korea
  • Syria

Under U.S. law, it is illegal to export products to those countries, either directly from the U.S or by re-exporting products from an intermediate country. U.S. export laws also prohibit “U.S. persons” from direct involvement in exports to those countries, even if the products to be shipped are not of U.S.-origin. (U.S. law also prohibits most imports from, financial transactions with, and visits to, those countries by U.S. persons.)

Accordingly, no sales or shipments, direct or indirect (including through agents or other third-parties), may be made by any Company affiliate to the embargoed countries.

No sales or shipments, direct or indirect, may be made by any Company affiliate to North Korea, Sudan or Syria without the express written approval of the General Counsel. Government policy is to deny requests for such export or reexport authorization in almost all cases.

Denied Persons and Entities
