Export Controls

Export Control refers to a set of regulations that govern the way that products, software and technology move across national borders for non-proliferation, national security or foreign policy reasons.

Trade compliance is as important as ever in this global world. Understanding the requirement and processes are critical and failure in this area can lead to substantial fines.

Export Control penalties can cause businesses all kinds of issues when it comes to the movement of goods:

  • Shipment delays
  • Shipment seizures
  • Prison sentences
  • Reputational damage

What kinds of businesses are affected by Export Control?

In short, all businesses are affected by Export Controls. These regulations regulate:

  • What a business trades
  • Whom they do business with
  • Where they export to

Understanding Export Control can be a complicated and laborious process. Knowing exactly how these regulations apply to your specific business is vital to avoid any costly issues further down the line.
