International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Office of Foreign Assets Controls & Embargoes (OFAC) Explained - complete with all Export Control Reform (ECR) Changes and New Administration Priorities:
This seminar series provides both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with a comprehensive education on complying with United States export regulations. We will review recent ECR changes and potential coming changes from a new administration and what they could mean for your compliance programs. Reform changes have relaxed the controls on some defense-related items and technology, but made understanding and complying with the regulations even more complicated. The shift of many military and space items from the ITAR to the EAR obliges exporters to learn the challenging ins and outs of the EAR. There is good news in the fact that the complex rules impose significantly fewer compliance burdens and fewer compliance-based export delays.
Expect to leave these seminars with an understanding of the rules that will allow you to minimize any delays in your exports, minimize your costs of compliance, and reduce the risk of inadvertently violating the law, giving your organization a competitive advantage and a compliance program on solid footing.
