Workshop Bolsters Mongolian Sanctions Compliance and Nonproliferation Efforts

Experts from the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control delivered a workshop September 22-23 for over 40 government, law enforcement, and industry representatives in use of the Risk Report database, the leading source of unclassified information on companies around the world linked to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and related sanctions evasion.  

The Wisconsin Project is a United States-based nonprofit organization that conducts research and public education aimed at inhibiting strategic trade from contributing to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.  Sponsored by U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation (ISN) Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program and organized in collaboration with the National Counter Terrorism Council of Mongolia, the training helps strengthen Mongolian public and private sector capacity to screen, detect, and investigate suspected export control or sanctions violations and bolster international sanctions compliance.
