Negotiating the Export Controls minefield
by Ken Ball (25 June 2015)
The UKTI encourages UK companies to export and to find new markets worldwide. The Electronics industry has a substantial export market, but negotiating the rules on what can or can't be exported to where, can be challenging even to large electronics suppliers.
New Electronics this week have highlight the Export Controls issue for electronic components and sub-systems in an article simply entitled 'Export controls compliance' http://www.newelectronics.co.uk/electronics-magazine/supplements/design-plus/export-controls-compliance/86607/

This picks up the work done last year by techUK and features one of the companies interviewed - Kemtron. Although some of the comments may apply specifically to Kemtron, in general they apply across the electronics components supply chain - certainly to any company exporting bespoke components.

Although the report published by BIS, highlighted by New Electronics, was published over three months ago, there have been ongoing discussions between the ECO and techUK to find a path through the minefield that the ECO have imposed.

The original BIS report can be found here:
http://discuss.bis.gov.uk/focusonenforcement/business-focus-on-enforcement-2/business-focus-on-enforcement-techuks-review/

In the next couple of weeks, techUK will have a formal meeting with the ECO and the Business Focus on Enforcement team to outline a full response to the techUK report which will outline a timetable for improvements to be made within the ECO systems.

High on the agenda for techUK and the many companies it represents are changes to the way End User Undertakings and Consignee Undertakings are implemented, along with the guidelines that the ECO publish on their web site. techUK estimate that the changes that they are recommending will save industry a huge amount of time and effort while maintaining the strict controls on exports that the ECO insist are required under EU legislation.
