The guide was drawn up by the University of Applied Sciences Chur as part of an Innosuisse project. The contents were developed based on the results of a quantitative survey and interviews with export companies. The guide aims to combine theory and practice and to present the complex topic of export control simply and clearly.

In addition to the basics of export control, the four ‘W’ questions (What is to be exported? Who is involved? Where are the goods or technologies to be exported? What will the goods or technologies be used for?) are examined in detail and a helpful inspection scheme is presented. This is followed by step-by-step instructions on how to successfully implement an Internal Compliance Program (ICP) in the company. The guide also helps companies to identify and successfully deal with potential risks at an early stage.
