Protect Your EU Market Access

Adapt to recently imposed sanctions on steel and steel-related products by verifying the origins of your steel against restricted sources. Assent’s solution identifies high-risk producers, ensuring your supply chain complies with the latest international trade laws and provides thorough due diligence documentation to prevent stoppages at the border.


Sanctions You Can’t Afford to Ignore

Growing global requirements on steel imports aim to prevent materials sourced from restricted regions, notably those connected to Russian entities, from entering key markets. Failure to provide evidence of due diligence could result in businesses experiencing:

  • Market Access Barriers: Without verifiable sourcing information and due diligence documentation, companies risk losing access to markets around the globe
  • Customs Delays and Fines: Goods held at customs due to non-compliance can lead to significant operational delays and financial penalties, impacting the bottom line
  • Reputation Risk: Association with sanctioned sources can harm a brand’s reputation, leading to long-term business consequences
  • Operational Disruptions: Addressing compliance issues diverts resources and focus from core business activities, affecting efficiency and productivity
