NORINCO has established and implemented a multi-faceted Internal Compliance Program (ICP) to prevent the proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). The ICP also involves means of delivery and control the proliferation risks of conventional defense products and technologies, dual-use goods and technologies, intangible technology transfers (ITT) and deemed exports, the company said in a statement Wednesday. NORINCO said that it supports the Chinese governments international commitments and obligations, the United Nations Security Councils resolutions, and international best practices in the area of strategic trade management and non-proliferation. This policy will be reviewed and revised on an annual basis in order to incorporate the latest developments of non-proliferation and export control. The company plans to scrutinize by three screening databases – one for sensitive countries, one for sensitive end-users and the other for controlled products; execution of comprehensive record keeping rules for export control-related documentation; passage of regulations on education; implementation of a multi-tiered training program; use of scheduled and random internal audits; and signing of a non-proliferation and export control letter of responsibility between corporate executives and managers of operational departments and subsidiaries. To ensure the effective implementation of its ICP, NORINCO established the ICP Council and ICP Office, which are authorized to veto any order in question. The ICP has been institutionalized by the issuance of non-proliferation and export control guidance and regulations; establishment and implementation of an automated, fully integrated order screening system using the screening databases.
