We would like to invite you to attend the Compliance & Business Ethics Working Group online meeting on Wednesday, 4th March, 14:30 – 16:15 via conference call. This meeting will consist of three parts:

Online voting instructions will be sent via email to individual attendees prior to the meeting.

2. Mr. Niall Cahill, VP and Head of Export Control at Siemens China will conduct a brief overview of the Draft Export Control Law. The Draft explicitly includes “deemed export” and reexport in its application scope and reinforces administration on end-users and end-use, meanwhile expanding investigatory power of export control authorities. If enacted, the Export Control Law may have significant implications on foreign enterprises, and thus is worth close attention.

3. A brainstorm session for the key recommendations for the 2020/2021 Compliance position paper that will be drafted this coming half year (for the 2019/2020 Compliance & Business Ethics position paper click here).
