Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program – Countering Iran, Syrian Chemical Weapons, ISIS, and Violent Extremist Organizations
The United States Department of State’s Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program is working to defeat ISIS and violent extremists, deny the Syrian regime access to sensitive technologies and materials, counter Iran’s malign influence, and disrupt the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) proliferation activities. This is being accomplished by:
- Developing legal and regulatory frameworks for strategic trade controls in Morocco, Tunisia, and Oman focused on educating partners on DPRK and Iranian sanctions compliance issues and working with the government of Jordan on regulatory reform initiatives to impede the Assad regime’s access to chemical weapons (CW) precursor materials;
- Working with Jordan and Lebanon to develop mechanisms to ensure they can adequately track illicit materials as they transit and exit their territories;
- Working with frontline enforcement officers, providing C-IED training to Libyan and Egyptian officials, land border security training across the region, advanced frontier border security training to Iraqi, Jordanian, Lebanese and Yemeni security officials, and air border security training to Iraqi, Jordanian, Libyan and Egyptian partners to mitigate threats posed by ISIS and other violent extremist organizations, including detecting and defeating threats to rail, bus and other soft targets; and
- Assisting industry partners in Morocco, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman to understand national and international strategic trade control obligations and various sanctions.
