View this free-to-attend webinar organised by the Export Group for Aerospace, Defence & Dual-Use (EGADD), a special interest group operating under the joint auspices of ADS Group, British Marine, Society of Maritime Industries and techUK, which is totally and exclusively focused on providing a range of services and activities related to global export and trade controls.

The webinar focused on the latest developments that have been emerging from Washington DC regarding potentially significant proposed US export control rule changes. These are related to a number of major international initiatives, including:

  • The tri-national AUKUS security partnership, involving Australia, the UK and US
  • Facilitation of joint multilateral work on nuclear-powered submarines
  • Cooperation on advanced cyber mechanisms, artificial intelligence and autonomy, quantum technologies, undersea capabilities, hypersonic and counter-hypersonic, electronic warfare, innovation and information sharing

For the successful delivery of a truly effective AUKUS, clearly the reduction of barriers that might inhibit and even prevent such joint multinational development and production work need to be identified and introduced, and one of the most significant of these is export controls.

This webinar enabled UK firms to learn about the latest developments related to the proposed rule changes and what these could mean for them.
