Strengthening export control practices through reinforced compliance, regulatory changes and evolving geopolitical environment


Increasing trade volumes together with greater scrutiny of cross-border flows and a stringent focus on compliance with export control and customs regulations create significant challenges for supply chains. Moving goods internationally can be complex and costly for businesses in today's competitive - global markets.

Product delays, stock-outs, emergency shipments, additional warehousing costs, customs audits and customs penalties are all common consequences of compliance failures. International trade controls have become a high priority for industries in recent years. Governments have started to take a more stringent approach to the topic and are placing a much stronger focus on enforcing customs controls to control the flow of data, technology and equipment around the world to make sure it does not fall into the wrong hands.
