Export Control Forum, Frankfurt, January 2015

Dual-use Outreach

Event date: 27/01/2015 - 28/01/2015

On 27-28 January an Export Control Forum "New and Evolving Challenges" took place in Frankfurt as part of the EU Outreach Programme in Export Control for Dual-Use Items. Around 100 participants from 23 partner countries and EU experts joined this international conference treating the novelties and challenges facing the future of export controls. Possible scenarios and recent developments were also discussed. 
 
Divided into four panel discussions, the Forum provided participants with practical approaches on how to develop and maintain a strategic trade control system while facilitating legitimate trade. The EU and international good practices and models were debated and shared among partner countries and EU experts explicitly addressing effective implementation of working-practices in export control focusing on emerging export control topics, such as transit/transshipment, emerging technologies in the dual-use control list, and intangible technology transfers (ITT) including the associated risks.
