JOINT OUTREACH SEMINAR ON STRATEGIC TRADE CONTROLS
Singapore Customs will be organising a one-day export control seminar on 11 December 2012. The seminar will provide a good opportunity for the trading community to enhance their understanding of the export control regimes of the US, the European Union, Japan and Singapore.
Manufacturers, exporters, logistics providers, freight forwarders, researchers and individuals dealing with strategic goods or strategic goods technology are encouraged to attend the seminar.
Strategic goods include not only arms and explosives and other military items, as well as commodities that are intended or likely to be used as weapons of mass destruction (WMD), but also commonly-traded "dual-use" goods that have both civilian and military applications.
Examples of "dual-use" products include integrated circuits (with or without cryptography functions), software for controlled telecommunications and information security devices, switching devices, machine tools and machining centers, mass spectrometers, photo-masks and photo-resists, and pumps and valves.
Strategic goods technology refers to the necessary know-how and technology for the development, production or use of any strategic goods.
