STRATEGIC TRADE CONTROLS
our expertise

The international trade of goods is essentially free but may be subject to restrictions or prohibitions that states impose to safeguard their national security interests and the peaceful coexistence of people, or to prevent the proliferation of weapons. These regulations may relate to purchases, sales, services, technology transfers or payments.

Nonproliferation efforts require that exporters are aware of their business partners┬┤ end use application. To ensure sustainable trade compliance, companies need a robust Internal Control Program that is regularly monitored, continuously developed, and safeguarded.
