Export control

Goods lists and embargo provisions

Global compliance thanks to worldwide data content

Compliance with applied export control measures of for instance the EU and the United States has become increasingly important. However, also further countries or territories have implemented and maintain corresponding measures. Even EU Member States may enact measures going beyond the common rules in the European Union. As with US sanctions, the US export control regulations may be applied extraterritorially.

To achieve the necessary compliance, the classification of goods according to customs tariff nomenclatures is not sufficient, as export control commodity lists are based on differently structured nomenclatures comprising specific categories.

According to our modular approach we offer the most important international and national export control commodity lists. Depending on the covered products, these lists usually refer to either dual-use or military goods. Where officially published, we also provide correlations of these lists to customs tariff nomenclatures.

Besides general lists of dual-use or military items subject to export control and licensing requirements, (designated) products may also be stipulated in connection with embargoes against specific countries.
