About Export control group
who are we
With a vast experience in international supply chain management, customs, change management and executive management, in 2013 Eric Both was confronted with his first challenge in Export Control. As everyone around him, he was unconsiously incompetent in this specific domain.
In the months following, Eric took a deep dive into the EU and US world of sanctions & export controls. The scarce seminars and information available on these domains appeared to be similar to the available support services – high level, focused on legislation and dominated by laywers and legal specialists.
From 2015 onwards Eric began to develop his services towards operationalizing sanctions & export control policies. He used the slogan “from the outside in and the inside out”, referring to the regulatory landscape translated into executable procedures on the shop floor.
In 2019 Eric founded the Export Control Group International BV. A network of specialists, active in the domain of sanctions & export controls, with a vast operational experience in various business and functions.
What began as an area of interest, now evolved into a full-time core business.
We don’t advise on compliance, we execute sanctions & export control compliance.
