Event Information

Come join us for the next event of the ACSS Benelux Chapter, hosted by Deloitte.

This event will feature a star keynote from the Dutch export authority – Centrale Dienst voor In- en Uitvoer (CDIU) – addressing us on the challenges and best practices in export licensing, followed by a chance for Q&A from the audience. In addition to exporters, our topic is also highly relevant for financial institutions who are conducting due diligence on their exporting clients and whether, or not, they would be involved in the financing of exports of controlled goods.

As usual, the event will conclude with a chance to connect with your colleagues over a few drinks and nibbles.

Don’t miss it!
