Export control laws and regulations are the legal framework for countries
around the globe to ensure world peace and stability and their importance in
international trade is growing. The reasons behind this growth lie in the
evolution of technology, the fact that increasing amounts of goods/services
are subject to controls (such goods/services representing a very large segment
of world trade), and in the increasing threat linked to terrorism.
Consequently, export control laws and regulations have become extremely
important for those involved in the international trade of goods/services with
a direct – or even indirect – military use. Export control laws and
regulations are complex, difficult to understand, and constantly evolving.
Infringements can lead to very serious sanctions (civil, administrative, or
criminal), and, not to be minimized, the risk of serious damage to the
corporate image of one or more parties to a questionable transaction.
Yann Aubin and Arnaud Idiart are experienced professionals confronted to
export control issues on a day-to-day basis in their respective capacities as
lawyer and export compliance officer within two large multinational companies.
They have gathered contributions from expert practitioners (EADS and Thales as
well as Hogan Lovells) and university scholars (Paris 11 Law School/Institute
of Space and Telecommunications Law (IDEST) faculty and advanced students) to
make the Export Control Handbook as useful as possible. The Export Control
Handbook provides a practical examination of the export/import control regimes
of defence and dual use goods and services of a number of selected
jurisdictions around the world (China, European Union, France, Germany, India,
Italy, Japan, Russian Federation, Spain, United Kingdom, United States). The
Handbook contains a very useful appendix including, among other things,
compliance procedures and standard country-specific application (or related)
forms. The aim of each country-specific chapter of the Handbook is to provide
actionable information designed to guide importers or exporters of military or
dual-use products in such jurisdiction. The Export Control Handbook is
invaluable to any international trade professional (lawyer, compliance
officer, procurement officer, etc.) or entity with a need to know the specific
requirements to be followed in the jurisdiction in question for the efficient
– and legally compliant – import or export of controlled military or dual-use
goods or services.
