US Export Controls with REFORM CHANGES Seminar

8 September, 2014 - 11 September, 2014, Huntsville, AL, United States

Related Events

This seminar series provides both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with a comprehensive education on complying with regulations administered by the US Departments of State, Commerce & Treasury, and what the recent and coming changes mean for their compliance programs.

Recent Export Control Reform (ECR) changes have relaxed the controls on some defense-related items and technology, but made complying with the regulations even more complicated. Companies whose items were previously controlled by the ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) will now need to learn the ins and outs of the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) as some items shift from the USML to the CCL.
