End-Use Checks Module: Enhancing Diversion Risk Assessment

Use case

In today’s global business landscape, mitigating diversion risks and ensuring the proper end-use of goods is paramount. Export control regulations, such as “catch-all” controls for non-listed dual-use items, demand vigilant assessment. RespectUs has developed the End-Use Checks module to simplify this process. In this practical use case, we’ll explore the module’s significance and role in strengthening diversion risk assessment.

The Problem

Assessing diversion risks and confirming end-uses’ legitimacy for sensitive items can be complex and demanding. The challenges include:

  • Compliance Complexity: Navigating through intricate regulations, such as Article 4 of the Recast EU Dual Use Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2021/821) and national export control laws.
  • Information of Concern: Identifying and addressing situations where there is information of concern about the stated end-use.
  • Notification Requirements: Ensuring that no export occurs without notifying the competent authority and awaiting their final decision.

The Solution

RespectUs’s End-Use Checks module simplifies diversion risk assessment and ensures compliance with catch-all controls.
