An overview of the export controls which may apply to your goods.

What you’ll learn

  • the role and importance of export controls
  • what kinds of products may be affected
  • the UK export licensing system

Description

There are restrictions on the movement of some goods across international borders.  Much of this depends on the types of goods you are exporting, and the rules relating to your product area.  This module will begin by outlining the importance of finding and understanding which controls apply to your goods.

For those who are exporting military or dual-use items, we will also cover the UK Export Licensing system and outline factors to consider before beginning your export journey.  Finally, we’ll discuss the international embargoes and sanctions which all companies need to consider.
