Export- and Trade Compliance-Regulations for Inertial Navigation Systems and Inertial Sensors (Dual-Use)

Depending on its class of accuracy and/or its base of development origin (industrial / military) the export of inertial components or of inertial measurement systems  can be subject of export control.

The following links may assist the reader to get an improved understanding of export control mechanisms and how to deal with the regulations.

According to the international Wassenaar Arrangement, also for inertial measurement systems and components with the capability of gyro compassing (true north finding) or if they had been specifically designed for military usage covering specific performance requirements, an export certificate has to be granted by the competent authorities. In Germany the BAFA (German Federal Office for Export) is responsible to grant such license. The license is required, if the buyer or/and the final end-user are operating the goods outside of the European Union. If the buyer or/and end-user of so-called "dual-use" goods are located inside the countries covered by the EU001 regulations (Switzerland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Norway), a simplified export control procedure for these dual-use goods is applicable and iMAR Navigation will handle the according notification to BAFA automatically without any administration effort for the buyer. Furthermore, some components may be controlled by natioanl export regulations (e.g. in France by DGA or in the USA or Canada by so-called ITAR regulations (U.S. Department of State/ Bureau of Industry and Security) - in this case, iMAR Navigation will apply also for those additional licenses.

Please contact us for all re-exports/ re-transfer  activities or intentions, because of the Trade Compliance monitoring.

Please study the official regulations which are binding for the buyer as well as for the end-user.
