The Note argues that the Toshiba and Krongsberg sales illustrate the critical need of Western allies to agree on a functional means of promoting international trade without compromising international security. Part I examines the illegal sale of ship building technology to the Soviey Union by Toshiba. Part II discusses how COCOM works. Part III analyzes current coproate, national, and multilateral efforts to enhance the effectiveness of export controls. This Note concludes that to prevent future violations, the member nations of COCOM should adjust their export control policies to reflect changes in technological progress and should strive to achieve greater unification in their policies and goals.
