An Introduction to Export Licensing

Online Workshop


½ day 

Export licensing systems are used to prevent goods from ending up in “the wrong hands” when they are exported.  Under existing UK and non-UK legislation, exporters are responsible for ensuring that their goods, software, or technologies, are not unwittingly breaching any export controls when shipped or transferred intangibly abroad.

Whether you are new to export licensing, or you already have experience of export controls but need refresher training – this course is for you!

Attend this workshop and learn how to become more compliant with export controls legislation, as part of your commitment to being a responsible exporter.
