The purpose of the course
Incoterms: This is your opportunity to understand fully the comprehensive aspects of International Commercial Terms 'Incoterms'. If you do not know your DAP from your DAT, or get confused over FOB versus FCA; then this is the course for you.

We'll guide you through each of the Incoterms, explaining the costs involved, and whether these should be met by the seller or the buyer. We'll identify the transfer of risk points for each of the 11 Incoterms, and clarify the issue of Insurance.

Export Licence Controls: We'll enter the world of Export Licence Controls, explaining the role of Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU), and their online export control portal (SPIRE, and its' replacement). Whether you are exporting goods designed for military use, or dual-use items, or whether you're not sure, we'll explain the rating process and the importance of end-user undertakings.

Export Licence rules do not only cover the physical movement of goods, but also cover certain software and certain technology.

Benefits for your organisation
