What we do
Strategic Trade & Border Security
Creating strong systems for a safer world
CRDF Global promotes safe and secure communities worldwide by working with U.S. and foreign government partners to regulate, identify, and disrupt the illicit transfer of controlled goods and services across borders.
Our mission is to deliver tailored capacity-building programs to manage trade in strategic goods and improve border security operations and management.
Our programs enhance national export control regulation and the interdiction and detection capabilities of border security forces. We enhance regional, interagency, and industry coordination among stakeholders, building partner nation capacity to prevent transshipment of illicit goods, detect falsified information and improve the security infrastructure of land, air, and sea borders.

Training Jordanian Customs Officials to Regulate WMD & Dual-Use Goods
Under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State’s Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program, CRDF Global subject matter experts joined with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to prepare Jordanian Customs Officials for the implementation of a new bylaw meant to regulate trade in goods that may be used to develop weapons of mass destruction. Approved in August 2020, the Regulations for Customs Control on Dangerous Goods and Dual-Use Materials bylaw allows Jordanian Customs to monitor the transit of dangerous and dual-use goods through the country’s territory.
Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD)
CRDF Global partnered with experts in trade, technology, and security, as well as UN Security Council resolution sanctions (UNSCR), to develop a legal basis for UNSCR enforcement and other strategic trade controls in the Caribbean. The project, funded by Global Affairs Canada, launched with a workshop for participants from Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and Barbados. Subsequent follow-up visits addressed UNSCR obligations, provided models for laws and regulations geared toward meeting these obligations, and provided direct assistance in formulating laws and regulations tailored for their specific institution.
Aviation Security Capacity Building in Iraq
CRDF Global was proud to lead a team of organizations in implementing an Aviation Security (AVSEC) capacity building program for, and in coordination with, the Government of Iraq (GOI). Funded by the Department of State’s (DoS) Office of Export Control Cooperation (ECC) and Export and Related Border Security Programs (EXBS), this effort aimed to strengthen the GOI’s ability to prevent and counter the proliferation of dangerous weapons and related sensitive commodities.
