Such penalties may be imposed on Malvern Instruments, individuals employed by or otherwise affiliated with Malvern Instruments or any combination thereof. Because of the fundamental importance of complying with all applicable export controls, employees who knowingly violate such controls or this compliance policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including possible discharge from employment.

He/she is also responsible for the development, implementation and updating of a company-wide Export Control System, regularly training employees on export controls, ensuring that products are classified for export control purposes and auditing the company’s compliance with export controls. Any employee aware of or suspecting questionable conduct or potential violations of export control laws should immediately report these concerns to the Export Compliance Officer.
