The Importance of Compliance

HM Revenue & Customs have recently prosecuted a Leicestershire based company for illegally shipping controlled chemicals and metals to foreign territories, despite being refused an export licence.

The company was under investigation for several years and continually tried to ship controlled materials. The shipments were intercepted at the border and the company failed to apply for the required export licences.

HM Revenue & Customs takes action against those that refuse or fail to comply with the UK's Export Control Regulations and will make heavy penalties, which include fines and even imprisonment, against those that contravene the compliance processes that are in place.
