US Re-exports: 

A Risk for German Enterprises 

Many exporters overlook the fact that US law also has extra-territorial application. The legal consequence of this extra-territorial effect of US law is that German exporters must observe the relevant US re-export regulations when their goods contain US components above a certain threshold value. Thus, if the (German!) product contains US components, the export of that product may be subject to US re-export law. The penalties for violating these regulations may have a dramatic impact on the company; it can even be completely excluded from conducting business with US companies for a period of time (Denied Person). We advise clients on compliance with US re-export regulations and defend their interests in the event of a violation.
