SMi are pleased to announce the 7th annual Defence Exports conference convening on the 1st and 2nd October 2012, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

As a senior defence exports professional this is your opportunity to network with key Government speakers and industry leaders from the U.S., Europe, APAC countries and more to learn all the latest updates on international export control regulations.

At this symposium you will gain valuable information from officials of the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Defense, and the newly formed Export Enforcement Coordination Center (E2C2) on the current developments in US Export Reforms and plans for the future. Hear from the European Commission and the European External Action Service's EU Council Working Party on Conventional Arms Exports (COARM) on Common Position 2008/944/CFSP on the control of export of defence equipment and technology and the Transfers Directive. Listen to presentations from EU member states such as the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain and The Netherlands and international countries such as Turkey and Israel and analyse global developments between friendly countries.


 

This conference will analyse how regulations on dual-use items, the United States Munitions List & ITAR, the Commercial Control List & EAR, compliance procedures & licensing protocols & applications, the Arms Trade Treaty & other international treaties, embargos & sanctions, and other controls impact on defence companies' global trade operations. Understand export controls for countries such as Malaysia, India and Korea and place your company at a strategic advantage with critical compliance information.

 

The conference agenda draws together export control professionals from international Government departments, case studies from the major defence companies in the world, international trade law expertise from global law firms and trade management experience from leading consultancies in the field. This comprehensive knowledge will equip any senior export professional with the essential information and skills to manage their international defence trade operations efficiently whilst staying compliant with the labyrinth of different controls and regulations.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
