More detailed information about export control

Explanation of current export control legislation (Germany, EU, US)

The fundamental principle applying to foreign trade at both GER national and EU levels is the free movement of goods.
According to section § 4 paragraph 1 of the German Foreign Trade and Payments Act (AWG), restrictions and statutory duties can be imposed to protect certain higher-ranking interests.
For information security reasons, Unify supplies products, services and solutions that contain encryption and are therefore subject to controls in connection with the EU Dual Use Regulation and the US Commerce Control List (Export Administration Regulations - EAR).
Unify's products, services and solutions can be exported to a large number of countries on the basis of a German General Export Authorization and License Exceptions in many cases. Depending on the current political situation, individual export licenses may be required.
In cases where a General Authorization or License Exceptions cannot be used for encryption products, Unify can apply for an individual export license from the relevant export authorities.
