All businesses that export goods or technology overseas should be aware of their export control obligations. In the UK, strategic goods controls cover both goods and related technology specifically designed or modified for military use and so-called “dual-list” items, which are not specifically designed for military purposes but are high technology or have capabilities that could be used in both civil and military applications. This may include both individual components of a dual-use item and associated technology and software.
Failure to comply with export controls may result in significant fines and criminal prosecutions, together with the resulting reputational damage.
Our team has wide experience of advising technology companies on their export control obligations, in particular in relation to the export of computers, telecoms equipment, avionics equipment and cryptographic goods.
