There are international controls in force, implemented in regional/national legislation aimed at preventing exports which may:
- Provoke or prolong conflict
- Lead to destabilising build-up of conventional weapons or the proliferation of WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction)
- Threaten national security (of the country concerned or its allies)
- Be used for abuse of human rights
The regulations are commonly called the “Dual Use Regulations” and they are based on a number of international agreements/treaties (see foot of this page).
- Awareness Training for staff at all levels.
- Equipment assessments – working with your staff to assess whether equipment that you are planning to export is controlled by the regulations.
- Compliance Management Systems – helping you to set up Management Systems to ensure this important risk is well managed in your business.
So please get in touch if you think I can help.
