This workshop will take an in-depth and interactive look at three critical elements of meeting the dual challenge of understanding the rules and implementing effective compliance procedures.

First, we will bring you up-to-date on the latest key elements of Export Control Reform and examine strategies and methods for updating your compliance procedures to comply with the new ECR rules. No one ever said Export Control Reform (ECR) was going to make the rules simpler, but the resulting reforms can be of real benefit to your organization if you invest the time necessary to understand the changes and adapt your procedures.

Next, we will examine the reality that the government is actively enforcing the rules and the fact that violations are bound to happen. You need to know what to do to better prevent violations and effectively deal with them when they do occur.

Finally, we will spend the second full day interacting with ECTI’s experts and conducting a dynamic workshop which will give you the opportunity to take a fresh look at your compliance procedures and benchmark them with the best practices of your peers. This is an opportunity like no other to learn from  the best minds in the field of trade compliance -- as well as share what is working well in your organization.

Join ECTI in this interactive workshop for the chance to learn how other professionals approach compliance and to reinforce and update your understanding of the rules through real-life compliance challenges.
