Export Control Symposium

Mr. Watchlist’s professional persona will be at the Dow Jones booth at the ACAMS spring conference (the official title would give me carpal tunnel if I typed it all) this Monday through Wednesday. As usual, it’s being held at the Diplomat resort hotel (it’s a Hilton – yay!) in Hollywood, Florida. Come say hi and we can chat about sanctions till the cows come home (although I’m not sure there are any cows down by Fort Lauderdale).

The webinar Export Controls and EU Exit, first broadcast on 1 March 2019, is now available online. 

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, dual use items from the UK to the EU will require a licence. An Open General Export Licence has been created for this purpose.

The webinar was designed to assist UK companies to understand the status of EU General Export Authorisations and the recently published OGEL.

To access this Webinar you will need to either have ‘Webex’ installed on your machine or an ‘ARF’ file-type player, such as the one provided at the link.
