Export Control Compliance

Export Controls are essential to protect national security interests and ensure defence related technology does not fall into the wrong hands.  Many organisations underestimate the importance of understanding the origin and export jurisdiction of goods and technology they hold, along with related compliance obligations for re/transfers and end-use.  The absence of a robust export control compliance strategy can be a deal breaker when it comes to operating in a defence environment, and hefty penalties can be incurred for non-compliance.

Navigating the complexities can be challenging for most organisations, particularly where US technology is involved.  The ability to understand and adhere to export regulations including International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the Australian Defence Strategic Goods List (DSGL) is not only essential to achieve and maintain export control compliance but will also assist in demonstrating your ability to be defence ready when providing support within the defence sector.
