Tuesday 17th April 2018
9:30am - 4:30pm

Refreshments, Lunch and a comprehensive Export Expert manual of the topics covered will be provided.

The purpose of the course:

Incoterms: This is your opportunity to understand fully the comprehensive aspects of International Commercial Terms “Incoterms”.  If you do not know your DAP from your DAT, or get confused over FOB versus FCA; then this is the course for you.  We’ll guide you through each of the Incoterms, explaining the costs involved, and whether these should be met by the Seller or the Buyer.  We’ll identify the transfer of risk points for each of the 11 Incoterms, and clarify the issue of Insurance.

Export Licence Controls: We’ll then enter the world of Export Licence Controls, explaining the roles of Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and their SPIRE system.  Whether you are selling goods designed for Military use, or Dual-use items: or whether you are not sure (!), we’ll explain the classification process, and the importance of End-User Undertakings.  Export Licence rules do not only cover the physical movement of goods, but also encompasses software, technology, irrespective of whether or not the goods are departing from the UK.

Benefits for your organisation:

A unique opportunity to learn about these two very different aspects of International Trade.
The new Incoterms 2010 rules will be examined in detail, ensuring awareness of which 4 Incoterms have been removed, and the 2 extra Incoterms that have been introduced.  Use these International Commercial Terms to understand the costs and risks when moving goods internationally, thereby avoiding disputes with your customers.  Export Licence Compliance is essential to all exporters.  Companies large and small must equally comply with our Licensing rules.  This course will ensure you aware of the SPIRE system, and how to keep updated on the frequent changes.
