Arc Sanctions Policy

Policy statement

Globally, the Arc network operates in many countries and across many sectors, celebrating and encouraging cross-cultural diversity and community. In all of our endeavours, we follow all local and global regulations as well as our own internal values. However, due to international economic sanitations, we are not able to transact freely with people and businesses from all countries or areas. The Arc network will comply with all economic sanctions laws, regulations, embargoes or restrictive measures to which it is subject.

Compliance with sanctions

Arc, including all of its subsidiaries, as well as its employees, must comply with all sanctions applicable to them and may not engage in any activities that could violate applicable sanctions. In practice, this means we will not transact with any business or national from a country or restricted area on either the US or UK government sanction lists. This includes but is not limited to activities such as: contracting to exhibit, extending visa letters, permitting sponsorships, circulating magazines, and allowing for pre-registration.


We will consider non-compliance of this policy as a serious matter warranting disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, where allowable by law. Violations of sanctions can also have legal consequences for individuals involved, including severe monetary fines and imprisonment.
