Export Control Management

Overview

Export control compliance is a challenging task for exporting companies. Global supply chains are constantly at risk because companies must adhere to numerous regulations which are quite complex and change frequently. This includes export control classification, checking sanctions lists and embargos, determining licensing requirements (including license management), as well as checks of end use and/or end users. Therefore, commitment to export control compliance and effective risk management requires the use of appropriate software tools.

MIC’s Export Control Management (MIC ECM) allows for central management of all company transactions under export control law and detailed checks of  business transactions with respect to the relevant regulations. Clear status information and comprehensive check reports for each transaction ensure a complete and consistent audit trail. This includes screening of the persons and organizations involved in a given transaction against different sanctions lists, checking of the goods in consideration of dispatch and destination country, and documentation of end use and end users.
