Export Control
The purpose of export controls is to protect national security and foreign policy by ensuring that relevant exports are kept out of the hands of unauthorised users and not used for unauthorised purposes.
Such controls are imposed by all the countries in which our Businesses are located.
BAE Systems is committed to maintaining an effective system of export control compliance that is designed to avoid violations, detect them promptly if they occur, and provide timely responses, including prompt investigations and appropriate remedial actions. Export Control laws vary from country to country but the regulations which most often affect the Company include the UK Export Control Act 2002, the International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) Regulations, EU Regulation 1334/2000, the US Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the economic embargoes established by the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
Our leaders shall ensure that all employees in their Business comply with all applicable laws and regulations when importing and exporting products, services and information, and shall act at all times in accordance with the Code of Conduct and the Export Control Procedures.
