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.
