Farhad Alavi Speaks on UAE Export Controls

I had the pleasure of speaking on export control laws in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) today at the 14th Annual National Forum on Global Export Controls Compliance in Washington.  The conference was a two-day event featuring both firm lawyers, in-house counsel, and U.S. government officials.

Export control laws are still a new concept in the UAE, although the country did implement Federal Law (No. 13) of 2007 Concerning the Commodities Subject to the Monitoring of Imports and Exports in August of that year. This law was amended in 2008 and 2010.  Generally, the UAE has ramped up not only its export control enforcement but also that of financial crimes and UN Security Council Resolutions.
