The training events are aimed at exporting and trading individuals or companies, of all sizes and government organisations, and cater for a wide range of knowledge levels.

– The trade and brokering services controls – i.e. trafficking and brokering, covering both the goods and the activities specified.
• End-Use Controls
– Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) (catch-all) and military end-use controls.
• Licence types and the licensing process
– The different types of licence, common pitfalls when completing a licence application and how decisions are reached on whether to issue or refuse a licence.
– Why we have compliance visits and what to expect during one.
• Concluding remarks including staff training
