Export controls are a system of laws and regulations that prohibits the unlicensed export of certain goods, information and/or technology for a variety of reasons, such as;
- national security
- economic protection
- foreign policy
These controls can be further complicated by regional controls or United Nations sanctions. Furthermore, non-compliance with these regulations can be extremely costly (some fines exceed US $100m) and can include bans on all exports and in some cases criminal charges can apply.
The Centre for Export Controls Excellence (CFECE) recognises the disparate nature of export controls and we aim to provide a “one-stop-shop" for all things 'export controls'. We can provide advice, consultancy and training (e-learning and face-to-face) on most countrys export control systems. We also endeavour to provide you with helpful tools, such as our industry news, expert updates and a discussion forum. If you have any queries, suggestions or require assistance with export controls, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
