Course - Spotlight on the new EU Dual-use Regulation

On 9 September 2021, the amended EU Dual-Use Regulation will enter into force. It brings new export controls, expands the range of available authorisations and provides for more coordination between the EU Member States. So what does this mean for your business in terms of controls, compliance and due diligence? Can your company benefit from the new authorisations? And what does the amended regulation tell you more generally about the current status and future of EU export controls?

To mark the entry into force of the new Regulation, our expert Marlies Heemskerk-de Waard will be hosting a special course. She will talk you through the amended and newly introduced controls and authorisations and address the requirements for due diligence, internal compliance programmes and export administration. Marlies will also discuss the implications for a number of hot topics in export controls, such as the level playing field among the EU Members States, the relationship between human rights and export controls, and the future of emerging technology controls.

This Course will be held on Tuesday, 7 September at our Amsterdam Office (Covid permitting) from 08:00 – 10:00.
