The Organisers of the Bahrain International Defence Exhibition & Conference (BIDEC) supports the application and enforcement of both UK and other relevant international arms control and arms export legislation.
Specifically, it is a requirement that all equipment, services, documentation and all other forms of visual promotion and display, exhibited or proposed, must comply with UK law and international undertakings, EU/UN Law and EU/UN international undertakings.
The Organisers of the Bahrain International Defence Exhibition & Conference (BIDEC), in cooperation with multiple Government departments, have defined the following policy on matters of compliance at BIDEC. All products on display must comply with the UK Export Control Act 2002 (as amended) and it is solely the exhibitors' responsibility to obtain all necessary licenses and authorities. Compliance audits will take place throughout the event and exhibitors who are found in breach of this policy will forfeit their right to exhibit.
The controls on Category “A” goods apply to all forms of promotion, including general advertising. The act of distributing hard copy or electronic brochures or catalogues containing reference to any such product, or the inclusion of images of such products in stand displays, or any other form of other marketing of these products at BIDEC is prohibited unless accompanied by export control and/or import licenses or other permissions from relevant government authorities.
