source, transit, and transshipment countries with strengthening their strategic trade controls and border security.

Through this assistance, EXBS bolsters partner countries? capabilities to detect and interdict illicit transfers of strategic items, radioactive materials, and other WMD components; as well as man-portable air defense systems and other conventional weapons.

EXBS also works to prevent irresponsible transfers of sensitive items by helping partner countries to recognize and reject proposed transactions that would contribute to proliferation.

EXBS focuses on capacity-building through legislation development outreach, licensing and regulatory workshops, enforcement training, provision of inspection and detection equipment, and assistance with government-industry outreach and interagency coordination.

EXBS has over 50 active partner countries on five continents.
