All companies with operations in the UK and/or the European Union particularly – not just those dealing in defense or dual-use items – need to be aware of the export controls and sanctions regulations that may apply. Those regulations, while similar to their US equivalents, also have significant differences. Businesses that understand the requirements and have effective processes to manage them will be best positioned to navigate the rules efficiently and avoid the penalties of non-compliance. You will gain a clear understanding of the basics of UK/EU export controls and sanctions, how the UK/EU rules differ from those of the US, pitfalls to avoid, and practical guidance on how to ensure compliance.
