Bourse & Bazaar is dedicated to the open exchange of information for consumption by a reading public. The publisher, BHB Emissary, and its partners take sanctions regulations seriously, and have pursued all reasonable measures in consultation with specialist counsel to ensure compliance with relevant American and European regulations. Our own commitment to compliance is part of a larger effort to help businesses and their agents to better achieve compliance through ready access to information about Iran.
