Training and Equipment
The EXBS program draws from the curriculums of its implementers to provide nearly 100 kinds of activities and training that address every aspect of the five core pillars at the local, national, and regional level. These include specialized topics relevant at every step of the export control system, from proliferation awareness for senior policymakers, to legal/regulatory models, to licensing practices, to commodity identification training and detection and enforcement techniques at air, land, sea, and rail borders. EXBS also provides state-of-the art detection equipment and equipment training.
EXBS sponsors regional and global conferences to bring national policymakers and technical experts together to share information about proliferation challenges and the latest developments in the multilateral nonproliferation regimes, to compare experiences, and to facilitate information-sharing and networking. EXBS sponsors regular International Export Control Conferences and Global Transshipment Conferences, as well as many regional conferences. EXBS events have also focused on UNSCR 1540 implementation and improved controls on conventional arms, including MANPADS and small arms/light weapons, and dual-use items.
