BANGKOK (NNT) - Thailand’s Department of Foreign Trade (DFT) has urged exporters to prepare for the implementation of the catch-all control (CAC) measure in the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction Act of 2019.

 

DFT deputy director-general Dhadchyarbhon Abhimontejchbud said preparatory steps include setting up an internal compliance program (ICP), to prevent trade activities pertaining to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), as well as monitoring compliance with the export control legislation.

 

He said the CAC measure will soon come into force as part of the new act, which became law early last year. The measure controls the export, re-export, transshipment, transit and technology and software controls of dual-use items (DUIs) and DUI-related items that pose a risk of being used in connection with the proliferation of WMD.

 

Mr. Dhadchyarbhon advised Thai exporters to accelerate the setting up of an ICP scheme to monitor DUIs through a network, to collect products, users, and end-user data. ICP schemes benefit exporters by clearly outlining the data of users and end-users for the government if their products are subject to export checks. Without an ICP, if their products attract the suspicion of intelligence agencies, their exports may be halted or held back by governments.

It's quite fashionable to redefine old terms since the turn of the century.

 

I think if we knew what exactly is defined as a 'Weapon of Mass Destruction' we would likely be a little surprised.

 

Does it mean an ICBM or a semi automatic weapon?

A plate of wifeys somtam and pickled fish easily qualifies.
