Understand how United States export control rules impact Asian businesses

United States trade control laws and regulations impact companies who use or resell US-origin products, components or technology. The US Government can impose serious penalties for US and non-US companies who  fail to comply with the extra-territorial US rules (including monetary fines, a loss of US Government contracts, or a complete ban from receiving any US items). Recent US Export Control Reform has moved many items from the USML (ITAR-controlled) to the CCL (EAR-controlled). It is essential that companies understand the implications of Reform and update their compliance programs to take advantage of the changes and avoid costly violations.

These seminars offer practical explanations and advice on what the rules are and how they impact companies outside the United States. Expect to leave these seminars with an in-depth understanding of what you need to do to keep your company compliant.
