Export Control and Customs at Unify

1. Export Control

General Information

As a globally operating company, Unify play an active role in foreign trade compliance. We supply our products, services and solutions to customer world wide.

As part of our company’s internal export control program, Unify analyses products, destination countries, consignees and end-use. The program is based on the export control regulations issued by the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the United States of America.

The Unify export control program also reviews consignees and end-users (companies, organizations and persons) against embargo and sanctioned party’s lists issued by the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the United States of America.

Unify won’t execute any transaction which might be in conflict with the export regulations.

More detailed information about export control

Explanation of current export control legislation (Germany, EU, US)

The fundamental principle applying to foreign trade at both GER national and EU levels is the free movement of goods. According to section § 4 paragraph 1 of the German Foreign Trade and Payments Act (AWG), restrictions and statutory duties can be imposed to protect certain higher-ranking interests.

For information security reasons, Unify supplies products, services and solutions that contain encryption and are therefore subject to controls in connection with the EU Dual Use Regulation and the US Commerce Control List (Export Administration Regulations – EAR).

Unify’s products, services and solutions can be exported to a large number of countries on the basis of a German General Export Authorization and License Exceptions in many cases. Depending on the current political situation, individual export licenses may be required.

In cases where a General Authorization or License Exceptions cannot be used for encryption products, Unify can apply for an individual export license from the relevant export authorities.
