REGIONAL SEMINAR TO SUPPORT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ATT FOR LATIN AMERICA AND THE

5 EU-Outreach in Export Control of Dual-Use Items (LTP)
On 18 – 19 November 2014, the Colombian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the EU ATT
Outreach Project (ATT-OP) co-hosted the
first regional seminar within the frame­
work of the ATT-OP for countries in Latin
America and the Caribbean. Representatives from 26 countries gathered in Bogota, Colombia to share experiences made
with regard to ATT ratification and implementation. To ensure maximum impact
of the event, participants with a varie­ty
of backgrounds (diplomatic, military/defence, technical and law enforcement) as
well as representatives of international
and regional organisations, NGOs and the
industry were invited to attend the seminar. Being the first regional seminar of the
ATT-OP project as well as the first EU-Outreach event on conventional arms in Latin America and the Caribbean, the seminar provided an excellent opportunity to
introduce the European Union’s outreach
on conventional arms control and promote international cooperation to strengthen the ATT.

The seminar was opened by Ambassador
Carlos Arturo Morales, the Colombian Vice
Minister of Multilateral Affairs, Dr Arnold
Wallraff, President of the Federal Office for
Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA)
and Ambassador Tanya van Gool, Head of
the EU Delegation to Colombia. In the rooms
of the Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
the seminar started with words of welcome
and reflections on the role of the region in
the global strive to an effective ATT as well
as its particular challenges. Several countries form the different sub-regions, such as
Colombia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, El Salvador
and Uruguay, provided very helpful overview of the status quo of their ATT ratification process as well as their national implementation strategies. In the presentations
and ensuing discussions, the importance of
developing a harmonised approach to ATT
implementation was identified as the key
element to ensure the effectiveness of the
Treaty. To the participants, an ongoing ex­
change of experiences and knowledge was
of vital importance.
Several topics surrounding the implementation of the ATT such as controlled items and
transfers, how to establish authorisation
processes (decision making), tackling diversion (challenges, strategies, solutions) and
record keeping and reporting were at the
centre of the breakout groups in the second
session of the regional seminar. Following

brief introductions by colleagues from
Mexico, Spain, Portugal and Germany, a
number of participating countries came
forward to present their national experiences with the respective topic in short
keynote speeches. This led to an open
and very fruitful discussion among peers
to identify common challenges and possible solutions. Again, the need to cooperate in the region, especially in relatively
homogenous sub-regions was mentioned
repeated­ly.
Finally, the regional seminar addressed the
coordination between projects to support
ATT implementation of different organisations. The United Nations Regional Centre
for Peace Disarmament and Development
in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC), the Caribbean Community Implementation Agency for Crime and Security,
Caribbean Community (CARICOM IMPACS),
Saferworld, the International Committee
of the Red Cross in Colombia and the Caribbean Coalition for Development and
the Reduction of Armed Violence (CDRAV)
all gave an insight into their activities and
the support they can provide. The different
viewpoints provided by this diverse group
of presenters proved to be an important
asset in assuring a broad and comprehensive understanding of available resources
and implementation strategies. In addition
to presentations from non-profit organisations, an industry representative provided
an important review of implications of the
ATT for the wider industry sector. A representative of Green Light Exports Consulting Ltd focused on what companies in the
region need from their authorities in order
to be compliant with ATT requirements as
well as regionally specific challenges.

EU-OUTREACH IN EXPORT CONTROL OF
DUAL-USE ITEMS (LTP) AND IN THE FIELD
OF CONVENTIONAL ARMS (COARM)
FINAL ASSESSMENT EVENT OF THE OUTREACH ACTIVITIES
On 04 and 05 December 2014, a final assessment event on the outreach measures
that have been carried out so far within the
EU-Outreach Programme in Export Control
of Dual-Use Items and the out­reach programme on Arms Export Controls under
Council Decision 2012/711/CFSP brought
together partner countries from several regions as well as EU Experts. Main objective
was to enhance the direct exchange with
partner countries.
The event was organized by the European
Commission (EC) and the European External Action Service (EEAS). All partner countries of these two programmes, as well as a
small group of selected EU and COARM Experts, had been invited. In this regard, over
50 participants from South East Europe,
Eastern Europe and Caucasus of the ENP,
North Africa and Mediterranean countries,
the Middle East, South East Asia and China
attended the activity.
During the event, the attending representatives from the regions mentioned above
had the opportunity to assess the impacts
and effects of the past outreach activities
as conducted in the framework of the two
programmes. The forum took up discussions of the mid-term assessment event in
March 2014 and provided the possibility to
share experiences. Furthermore, it enabled the attending country representatives
to provide a feedback to the EC and to the
EEAS, if and in which areas further cooperation with the European Union is desired. The received feedback is intended to
be directly translated into possible future
outreach activities. Not only the partner
countries, but also the EU experts shared
their experiences and insights with regard
to past outreach activities in which they
had participated.
The representatives of various partner
countries used the opportunity provided
by this final assessment event to thank the
implementing entity for the constant support provided over
the last years which
lead to a mutual, close and trustful cooperation with concrete
results.
This two days assessment event had a twofold objective: On the
one side, to offer the
partner countries the
opportunity and possibility to share their
view and expectations on the future cycle
of activities. On the other side, diversity of
countries encompasses diversity of needs
and therefore discussing priority areas,
mode and possibilities of cooperation was
another objective pursued by this event.
To provide a sufficient diversified outreach-tool box comprising various types
of activities like legal reviews, bilateral/
working meetings, awareness seminars,
regional workshops, individual assistance, study visits, staff exchange etc. in order to respond in an efficient manner to
the needs of the partner countries was
always an intrinsic objective of the outreach projects. Therefore finding a balanced
approach between regional and bilateral

was emphasized by the participants as
being one important findings of this Final Assessment Event. Both approaches
have advantages and disadvantages. However, although regional activities are
not addressing one specific issue for one
specific country, it allow to consolidate
and develop networking and to enhance
cooperation that sometimes goes beyond
the scope of the outreach projects. On the
other side, bilateral activities have a strong
specific character in answering national
requests.
All breakout groups shared the view that
the activities provided by the projects
were very useful and should be continued
having in mind the results achieved as well
as the impacts of former activities.
Developing ownership on the project as
a crucial success factor was also elaborated on in the breakout groups. The partner countries of both projects (LTP and
COARM) stressed out that they are not only
passive recipients of assistance, but rather
expressed their interest to participate in a
more active manner in the developing process of the projects´ activities. This need
of an active play role - role which constantly is being more and more actively taken by
the partner countries - has to be also understood from the perspective of assuring
a sustainable impact of the activities.
The back-to-back approach in organizing
outreach activities under LTP and COARM
project, approach that was for the first
time facilitated to be implemented by
the Council Decision 2012/711/CFSP, was
perceived by those countries who have experienced this type of activities as bringing
an add-value to the complex discussions
DECEMBER 2014
in the field of strategic trade controls. It
was advised that this approach should be
further kept, but when it comes to specific areas of cooperation separate events
should take place.
Furthermore, all participants were invited
to register to the EU Outreach web-portal
which had been presented in the midterm
assessment event in March 2014.
At the end of the event the representative
of the implementing entity brought to the
attention of the participants that although
for the moment a follow up of the Council
Decision 2012/711/CFSP is not given, Germany on national basis will try to respond
to the constant increased interest of the
partner countries and bridge this gap between Council Decision 2012/711/CFSO and
a possible new one by securing funds for a
national project during 2015 in the field of
arms export controls.
Both the European Commission and European External Action Service thanked all
participants for their active involvement
and participation in discussions and
break­out groups, and emphasized that a
new phase of outreach projects is currently
designed where the partner countries are
in a “driving position.”
We thank all our partner countries for attending this final assessment event and we
look forward to continuing this successful
cooperation.

CHINA – JOINT EU-CHINA HANDBOOK
CONFERENCE AND EXPORT CONTROL WORKSHOP
On 24 November, the Joint EU-China Handbook Conference took
place in Harbin, province Heilongjiang. The Conference was the
first opportunity to present the Joint EU-China Handbook on Export Control of Dual-Use Items to more than 70 Chinese industry
representatives as well as governmental representatives. During
the Conference each chapter of the Handbook was presented from
both the EU and the Chinese perspective. The presentations led to
interesting discussions between the participants and the experts.
Particularly, the topic on ICP was prominently discussed during
the conference. On the next day, 25 November, an Export Control
Workshop took place which focused on transit, brokering as well
as catch-all followed by discussions. Afterwards, industry representatives had the opportunity to talk about these topics with the EU
Experts. EU experts from Austria, France, Germany and Hungary
provided their expertise and had fruitful information exchanges
with their Chinese colleagues.
ALL REGIONS – EU EXPORT CONTROL FORUM
For the first time the EU Export Control Forum with the theme to explicitly address the new and emerging challenges in export control
will take place in Frankfurt, Germany from 27 to 28 January 2015.
Dedicated to over 90 working practitioners from the licensing, enforcement and policy side, this meeting will provide numerous opportunities to engage in discussions with representatives from over
30 countries as well as various non-governmental organisations.
One of the objectives will be to discuss and share EU good practices
and models by focussing on more emerging ‚newer‘ export control
topics, thus respecting different control activities such as transit/
transhipment, emerging technologies in the dual-use control list as
well as intangible technology transfers (ITT), including the associated risks.
The events can be seen as a successful closing point for the development of the Joint EU-China Handbook on Export Control of
Dual-Use Items that was jointly compiled and drafted by the EU and
China, starting in 2011.

COE PROJECT 5
MIDDLE EAST – REGIONAL WORKSHOP
Within the framework of the project “Knowledge development and
transfer of best practice on CBRN import and export monitoring,”
the German Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control
(BAFA) organized in cooperation with Netherlands Customs a regional workshop for Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon in Rotterdam on 17 – 19
November 2014.
Following the request of the Middle East partner countries, this
intensive three-day basic training on items listed in Annex I of the
EU Dual-Use Regulation 428/2009 was arranged in Rotterdam, the
Netherlands. It provided background information and very practical
exercises on basic commodity identification trainings (CIT) and familiarized customs officers with strategic equipment, components,
and materials used in the production of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) – giving them a „trained eye“ to improve their ability to recognize such commodities. In this regard, the CIT has been based on
physical observations of unidentified dual-use equipment and materials used in the development and production of CBRN weapons
and their missile delivery systems, focusing on their appearance,
characteristic/recognizable features, special markings or packaging,
container types, size, weight, and value etc. In addition, EU Experts
provided an overview on how such CIT trainings can be built up, i.e.
gathering suitable materials for trainings, advice on how to structure
trainings and exercises. A very practical insight view on how Slovenia set up their training mechanism was provided by an Slovenian
customs official.
In order to foster open information exchange and create a platform for all participants to exchange their national viewpoints,
representatives of each partner country provided an overview of
their national customs/regulation system in place and encountered challenges during the implementation phase. Following the
more theoretical two-day training, on the third day a very practical simulation training including controlling containers took place
at the training centre at Maasvlakte.

We would like to thank all representatives from our Middle East
partner countries and our colleagues from the Netherlands,
Slovenia and the UK for their valuable participation and input
during this workshop. A special thanks goes to the Netherlands
Customs for hosting and co-organizing this workshop.

UPCOMING EVENT
NORTH AFRIC A – REGIONAL WORKSHOP
CENTRAL ASIA – REGIONAL WORKSHOP
Motivated by the interest of the North African partner countries to
learn more about the role of enforcement and investigation authorities, a regional workshop on the „Investigation of Strategic
Trade Control Violations“ took place on 25 – 27 November at the
German Customs Criminological Office (ZKA) in Cologne, Germany.
Surrounded by a wide variety of examples of dual-use items seized by German Customs authorities and based on presentations of
real investigation cases, experts from Algeria, Morroco, Tunisia, the
Netherlands and Germany engaged in lively discussions about the
specific challenges of investigative action in this field. The relevant
real life experiences shared by specialised investigators helped to
get very practical insights and to touch on a number of related topics (such as the usefulness of control lists and catch-all controls).
The seminar very much focussed on demonstrating the necessity
of close interagency cooperation and of having sound legal back­
grounds in place. The event was followed by bilateral talks with
each partner country on their specific future perspectives and
planning.
The Regional Workshop for Central Asia will take place in Hamburg,
Germany, on 16 – 18 December 2014. Besides presentations on their
own CBRN import/export monitoring system the attending representatives from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan
will inter alia receive an insight into the customs container testing
facility at the port of Hamburg hosted by the German Customs Administration. Swedish and German experts in the fields of licensing
and customs will offer their expertise in all relevant fields regarding
CBRN import / export monitoring.
We would like to thank ZKA for their most professional and great
hospitality and, of course, all experts for their excellent contributions.
