Exporters of ALL products and their Forwarding Agents are more at risk in Today's World even than in the Cold War. Foreign subsidiaries (especially those with Ex Pat managers) are often unaware that they must comply with the Export Controls of the country in which they are resident as well as the regulations of their Parent Company's country of Origin.

Also some UK, US EU,UN and Japanese rules apply Extraterritorially to their exports and re-exports as well as to their websites and to their nationals resident abroad in more and more cases. This puts both forwarders and the exporter's directors at risk.


Widely regarded by many in both the public and private sectors

as the only consultancy in the UK that has extensive knowledge of the WTO rules and all aspects of international trade.

TARA has worked in association with lawyers in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Turkey, the UK and the US.
