Registration to virtual Export Control Forum

Registration to virtual Export Control Forum

The European Commission will hold the 2020 Export Control Forum, focusing on export control of dual use items, on 11 December 2020.

Participation in the Forum is subject to registration in accordance with the Commission’s instructions. This year’s Forum on 11 December will be held in virtual format. The instructions for online registration can be accessed on the website of the European Commission(Link to another website.). NOTE: The deadline for registration is Tuesday 8 December 2020. 

The Export Control Unit of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs encourages all current and potential exporters of dual-use items operating in Finland to register for the event and take an active part in the discussion.

The event is very special this year, because participation does not require travelling to Brussels. Additionally, significant changes affecting export control will take place soon, including the end of the transition period for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union at the turn of the year, and the entry into force of the Amended Council Regulation (EC) on the control of export of dual-use items next year, probably in early autumn 2021.
