EU P2P Seminar on the Implementation of Transit and Transhipment Controls


Event date: 04/04/2017 - 06/04/2017

In the framework of the EU P2P Programme on dual-use trade controls (CoE project No. 38) a seminar on the implementation of transit and transhipment controls in dual-use items for Jordan took place from 4th to 6th April 2017 in Amman, Jordan.

The overall aim of the seminar was to raise awareness among all ministries and government agencies that are members in - at least one of-  the different committees/commissions examining possible approaches for incorporating transit and transhipment controls into the legislative and administrative (licensing) system. During the seminar, the general principles and basic concepts for applying controls on the transit and transhipment of dual use items as well as the current Jordan approach and legislation for licensing exports and re-exports of dual-use items were discussed.


EU experts from Hungary, Germany and the Netherlands supported the seminar by providing presentations on the legislative framework and administrative procedures in the EU, customs border control operations in the EU as well as a case study of a possible transit or transshipment transaction.

Building on the case study, the Long Term Expert was able to draw lessons learned, assess the current situation and discuss with the participants necessary follow-up actions.
