Export control and sanction regimes disruption by new technologies

11 June 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

€130

The combination of innovation and digitization causes severe disruption to existing controls and regimes. New technologies have the potential to disrupt, if not evade, traditional export control regimes and thus pose significant challenges to businesses and regulators alike.

If you have cross-border operations through customers, third parties, or even through your own employees, you may face unexpected export control risks by simply following innovative trends. This is likely to be the case if you use or provide a cloud computing service, if the knowledge of your technically skilled employees is collected on a shared network, or if 3D printing is part of your production process. It would be a mistake to think that technological innovations and their far-reaching implications will stop here.

As a result, new technologies are playing a central role in ongoing discussions around the reform of EU Dual Use Regulation 428/2009. We may see stricter controls on cyber-surveillance, but potentially looser controls on cryptography. What can we expect from the regulatory changes and how can we prepare for them?
This seminar aims to identify the main innovative technologies and clarify their impact on existing export control management and related compliance requirements.
Target audience: trade compliance professionals, in-house company lawyers, CIOs, regulators, and so on
