Export Controls

Is classifying dual-use items and R&D projects proving complicated? Our export controls services complement our CAS Dual-Use tool to expedite accurate classification.

Ensure proper dual-use classification

Dual-use classification is the determination of whether an item is controlled under dual-use legislation—a customs control mechanism that applies to products, technology, and R&D projects that can be used for both civilian and military applications. ​​Classification can be a complex process, however, and incorrect classification can lead to delays and penalties for non-compliance. Trust your classification to C4T’s experts.
