The UK government has several reasons to control the export of goods, depending on the nature and destinations of the proposed export.
Anything which is on the UK strategic export control lists must have a licence before supplying to someone outside the UK (except for exporting most ‘dual-use’ items to EU countries).
The control lists include finished items or systems, raw materials and components. Below you will find some examples:
- Weapons and explosives;
- Goods, technology, software or components designed or modified for military use (eg. vehicles, aircraft, imaging equipment, cryptographic technology, training materials for a weapons system);
- Dual-use’ goods, technology, software, documents or diagrams which meet certain technical standards and could be used for military or civilian purposes (eg. chemical agents, computers, telecommunications equipment, marine or aerospace technology);
Export controls are not unique to the UK, all countries should have some form of an export control policy, legislation and enforcement mechanisms.
This course will also review the US Export Controls, International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) which may be imposed on UK companies.
It aims to provide delegates with a basic understanding of UK & US Export Controls and the implications of non-compliance.
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at those new to Export Controls, and any Export Control compliance staff who wish to ensure their knowledge is current.
