DylanGroup’s internal policy on International Trade Compliance Background

DylanGroup provides a complete package of steel piping products and services. Dylan distributes pipe, fittings, flanges, bar and valves to all kinds of industries worldwide, ranging from petrochemical and offshore, to power generation and shipbuilding. But we also supply specialist turn-key services, including project management and consultancy – for every project, small or large-scale.


Importance of compliance

In view of the nature of DylanGroup’s global business, it is a matter of policy to comply with the international trade legislation governing the transfer of goods, services and technical data e.g.

– embargoed / sanctioned countries
– export controls
– anti-bribery and
– anti-competition


Transfers do not only include physical shipments, but also the release of technical data (e.g. through visual inspection of equipment and facilities, verbal exchanges or application to situations abroad, of personal knowledge or technical experience), the electronic transmission of technical data and software, and hand-carrying technical data, software, samples, parts, and professional equipment.


It is the duty of all personnel in regard to the export or re-export of goods, services, technology or software, to obtain and maintain a working knowledge of the international trade compliance legislation applicable to their duties, and to ensure that all of their activities are conducted in compliance with such regulations. No violations of these requirements are permitted, regardless of their impact on the sale or transfer of goods, technology, software or services to a DylanGroup affiliate or to a third party.


In addition, as a matter of policy, DylanGroup requires that its suppliers, subcontractors and other business partners comply with the international trade compliance legislation governing the export of goods, technology, software and services in all transactions directly or indirectly involving Dylan Group. Failure to observe this policy may damage Dylan Group’s reputation and create substantial exposure for the Group of companies, including criminal and civil penalties, and imprisonment, with a subsequent impact on existing and future contracts.


In order to comply with the international trade compliance legislation, sufficient resources (time, budget and staff) are available. This way, DylanGroup will prevent any future violations or reputation damage.


In view of the importance of compliance with relevant laws and regulations, everyone must ensure that they understand our policy and our commitment.
