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/documentation required to become familiar with this process. In addition, export control covers not just the goods but in some situations the export to certain countries and certain denied parties. This can include both goods and technology/information or the “intangibles”.
This half-day course is not a replacement for any formal training at provided by the Export Control Organisation, but as 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.
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.
