EU CONSULTS ON INTERNAL COMPLIANCE CONTROLS COMPANIES THAT TRADE IN DUAL-USE GOODS

On 4th October, Out-Law published an article saying that the European Commission has launched a consultation on draft guidance on best practices for internal compliance programmes when trading goods that have both a civilian and military use, so called dual-use items.  This guidance, it says, will support businesses exporting so-called ‘dual-use’ items to design and implement compliance programmes designed to ensure they are complying with EU and national trade restrictions.  The guidance is intended to provide a framework to identify and manage the impact of dual-use controls and mitigate any associated risks.
