On 29 March, the EU published the Export Control Handbook for Chemicals and the online dataset which provide quick guidance for exporters and customs officers involved in the export and distribution of chemicals.  Many chemicals used daily in industrial processes or by persons are subject to export controls, because they can also be used to create explosives, nuclear weapons or other WMD, and thus present a potential threat to global security.  The Handbook enables exporters and customs officers to verify rapidly which chemicals require an export authorisation and to check exported products’ compliance with the EU export control legislation.


Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
