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.

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.
