Exhibitors should be aware that the promotion, procurement or brokering of any item on display at Counter Terror Expo may require the granting of a strategic export license from the relevant UK government authority.
The promotion of Category A items is prohibited at all Clarion Defence & Security Events. This restriction applies to all forms of promotion, including the distribution of brochures or other promotional material from your stand which features images or details of any category A goods, even if your company does not intend to market these goods at the event.
Category A goods include:
- Goods banned by the EU because of evidence of their use in torture.
- Restraints specially designed for restraining human beings.
- Riot control or self-protection devices designed or modified to administer an electric shock.
- Certain cluster munitions, including components.
If you are caught promoting category A goods without a relevant UK licence, you will be ejected from the event and could face enforcement action from relevant authorities.
