In principle, exports are free of restrictions, but according to foreign trade law and various EC regulations, numerous prohibitions and licensing requirements have to be observed. In particular, control of the export of risky and security-related goods, such as arms and armaments, will be carried out. You, as an entrepreneur, are obliged to carry out a product inspection. The test is carried out on the basis of specific lists of goods, in particular Part I of the export list and Annex I to the EC Regulation.
