US Export Control Reform changes can be a real benefit to your company's business once you understand how to adapt and maximize the benefit of list shifts from USML to CCL and how to apply the new definition of "Specially Designed" in the EAR. Our instructors are widely respected experts in the field of export control compliance with over 30 years of experience in interpreting and applying the rules of the EAR, OFAC, and the ITAR.
