Trade and Customs Compliance Group

The Trade and Customs Compliance Group is the forum for discussing issues around export controls, customs and international trade.

The group leads on all techUK’s policy work including OGELs, dual-use legislation, Wassenaar and defence exports, to customs, sanctions, international trade rules and more. The group aims to be the leading discussion forum for dual-use tech and formed from the merger of JETSECC (which focused on export controls) and ITAC (which covered trade and customs) and is chaired by David Macready of Fujitsu. The group also works in partnership with the ECJU, DIT, BEIS and the NSCS as well as other trade associations, law firms and consultants to develop industry positions.

There are three current subgroups (to be reconstituted in December 2017), covering:

  • Brexit. This sub-group is looking at what the export community wants from Brexit and how the UK should manage sanctions and how to develop legislation for effective dual-use controls
  • Customs. The customs sub-group will lead on engagement with Government on a new customs system post-Brexit, specifically examining the Customs Bill and the transition from CHIEF to CDS
  • Communications. This group will look at how the group communicates and manages external relations and raise the profile of the TCCG.
