What about end use statements for controlled exports ? can we rely on that information ?
This question was asked as part of our webinar on Russia which can be found at:
As anywhere, it depends on who you’re dealing with. If you are dealing with a newly registered distribution company in temporary premises on an obscure provincial city with no obvious employees other than the director than the answer is probably no.
If you are dealing with an established manufacturer was obviously in a line of business that might use the product in the answer is probably yes. The end use restrictions in Russia are not in any case very demanding byproduct. As with a country like India, the identity of the firm in question may matter more than the goods.
