He is a specialist in international trade and customs for over 30 years, and is the author of 5 books on international trade and customs topics, including NAFTA and USMCA.

He works with US importers and exporters from Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Austria, France, Germany, China, Turkey, Japan and Vietnam.
In the 13-minute Audio Interview, Mr. Glick discusses these questions:
- What is important to know about Sanctions against Russia, and is it only Russia that is covered? And how are these important to the US and global automotive supply industry?
- What US government agencies are involved, and how do you determine which agency has jurisdiction? Military products would seem clear enough but what about the “dual use” items you mentioned?
- What are among the most important recent sanctions, and what about making and receiving payments or loans from Russia? I hear this may be difficult. And… can one obtain licenses to export, or import products to Russia? Can I protect myself with my suppliers and customers through contractual provisions?
- Do you have some general advice to U.S. and global companies operating in the auto industry worldwide?
