Foreign Trade Information Service
Newsletter, factsheets and more

Trawling through the numerous websites of authorities in search of developments in customs and foreign trade law is an arduous and time-consuming chore. Why not subscribe to our newsletter and let us do the hard work for you? If you have a vacancy for an export control officer, just write to us and we will publish your job advertisement on our website. If you despair of the multitude of abbreviations in foreign trade, just refer to our Foreign Trade Glossary, which provides concise information on what “ACP” countries are, the basic components of “CCT” and what “REX” stands for. You do not have to be an AWA customer to access this service for free. Please note that the AWA's information services are only available in German language.
