Developing new products with overseas partners
You have a fabulous opportunity to develop a new and better product that will not need an export licence. Wait just a moment before you get completely carried away and think, “that’s it, I don’t need to worry about export control”.
“Development”, “production” and “use” information may be subject to control even if the final product is outside the control lists.
How can this be? The intermediary treatments and process used to make your product may be subject to control if they are exported around the world and, if of US origin will then attach US nationality controls when used.
‘Developing new products with overseas partners – exchanges of ideas and processes are subject to export controls’ will explore the areas of the control lists that cover machinery, materials and processes, what licences may suit your needs and how to manage the impact of any nationality controls.
