Strategic Trade Control: Industry Outreach and Compliance in the People’s Republic of China

In order to minimise the risks of illegal exports, it is imperative for China and other manufacturers and exporters of strategic goods (both military and dual-use goods and technologies) to put in place rules and procedures that require industry compliance with national norms. This briefing provides an overview of the legal basis, the tools and resources, and the implementation by the Chinese government of strategic trade control (STC) outreach and compliance. In particular, it highlights how China's STC outreach and compliance have changed with the enactment of the Law on Export Control (2020), and how they are likely to develop as the Chinese government looks to implement and enforce the new legislation.
