Blackthorne recently attended and showcased its export control compliance services at a Seminar held at DFIT in London. Numbers were unusually high, more than double from the same event 2 years previous. This is a good indication of two things, 1. More technology exports and 2. Exporters taking export controls more seriously. The export controls are there for one reason only – stop the bad guys getting stuff that can hurt us. This is why now more than ever it is crucial to ensure you are fully compliant when exporting any controlled goods. If you are not sure if your goods fall in this category please get in touch with us and we can easily check.
