The European Commission, in conjunction with member states, has produced draft guidance on the core elements that should be included in internal compliance programmes (ICPs).
Effective ICP programmes are a key element of the Commission’s proposals to modernise dual-use export controls in council regulation (EC) 428/2009. Hence the development of this non-binding guidance on best practice.
Action for exporters
The Commission has invited comments from European industry on this draft guidance via an online survey.
The export control joint unit (ECJU) agrees this is an important issue and encourages exporters to give their views. Any responses should be made direct to the European Commission via the survey.
The survey is open now and will close on 15 November 2018.
