Introduction to export controls
Tue 28 February 2017, 09:15 – 12:30 GMT
Many companies export products which are listed on the UK Strategic Goods Lists. In many situations, these goods will require an export licence and this half-day course gives an overview of the procedures and documentation required to become familiar with this process. Export controls don't just cover physical goods, they can be in place due to the destination or certain denied parties, and can also include 'intangibles' such as technology or information.
This half-day course is a starting point for any new exporter or member of staff who find themselves involved in exports. Many commercial or sales staff will never apply for an export licence but they still require some familiarisation of the procedures/processes required to be fully compliant with the law. It is not a replacement for any formal training provided by the Export Control Organisation,
If you are trading with the USA, this course will be especially helpful in highlighting the potential problems businesses can face if they get on the wrong side of US export control laws.
