In recent years, the importance of embargos has increased in the international commercial trade. Recent examples include measures against Al-Qaida, Syria or Russia. Due to the legal framework, Swiss companies have to carefully examine if their (planned) international business activities are affected. Export bears many challenges for the SMEs as to the dealing with critical countries, partners, and cargo or end use. Due to the intricacy and the high complexity of this topic, export control is a major challenge for internationally active Swiss SMEs. With this in mind, the goal for the expert roundtable on export control is to promote the exchange of best practices and to develop practical assistance for companies.
