Live Export Compliance Seminar

Learn the Impact of ITAR, EAR & OFAC Controls on Non-US Companies, Affiliates, and Transactions

March 13-16, 2023- Singapore, Singapore

This seminar series provides both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with an in-depth education on export control regulations administered by the US Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury as they apply to NL, EU, and other non-US-based companies who use or resell US-origin products, components, or technology as well as NON-US-LOCATED affiliates, parents, and subsidiaries of US companies.

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. Expect to leave these seminars with an in-depth understanding of what the current rules are and what you need to do to keep your company compliant.

Donald Pearce, Principal – Sentinel LLC
Donald Pearce, a retired Special Agent from the US Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), is an experienced investigator and subject matter expert on strategic trade control policy, transnational criminal investigations, export control systems, and national security issues. After 30-plus years of government service in both domestic and international roles, Mr. Pearce established Sentinel LLC; a consultancy focused on the intersection of international trade, technology, geopolitics, and security, to provide guidance that keeps companies safe, compliant, and prosperous.

Before his retirement in 2020, Mr. Pearce served as the acting Unit Chief for Liaison and Interdiction, providing subject matter expertise to international organizations, other government agencies, and industry worldwide. Mr. Pearce was the principal author of the 2016 amendments to the Wassenaar Arrangement’s Best Practices for Export Control Enforcement, drawing on over 30 years of customs and strategic trade control experience. He used his knowledge of cyber investigative and forensics techniques to partner with the FBI on a targeted outreach program focused on export control-related cybersecurity issues, significantly increasing awareness in the industry. His career included prosecuting precedent-setting cases, establishing the Regional Export Control Officer (ECO) position at the US Embassy in Singapore, coordinating successful interdictions of dangerous goods, and protecting the international supply chain through successful public/private cooperative efforts.

The resulting $3.75 million in criminal and administrative fines represent one of the largest monetary penalties for export violations in the history of BIS. He also has been awarded the Commerce Department Gold Medal for his participation in protection operations for the Secretary of Commerce during his 2003 visits to Baghdad, Iraq and Kabul, Afghanistan, and a Bronze Medal for his contributions to the Export Control Officer program.
