Exporters will have to study European legislation more carefully
At the end of February, the European Union approved another package of restrictive measures against Russia, which seriously affects the work of European manufacturers with buyers from countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and so on. Now, before sending the goods, they will have to be carefully checked for the possibility of their use in the military industry.
According to the EU Council Regulations No. 2023/427 and No. 2023/434 of 25.02.2023, dual-purpose goods are prohibited not only from being sold, but also simply transported across the territory of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the list of such items specified in the EU Regulation 2021/821 of 20.05.2021 is not connected to the customs codes of the HS harmonized system, but has only a fairly general description, which will create problems with unambiguous attribution of cargo to the category of sanctions.
