Course Description:

You must be certain you understand how U.S. controls on the export of goods, services, software and technology apply to your company. Otherwise, you could be risking your international sales and supply chain — along with your reputation.

The challenge is that the system of controls is so complex. It’s all-too easy to miss or misinterpret rights and responsibilities under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Plus, you may not even be aware that you’re now violating recent economic trade sanctions and embargoes.

To manage compliance and minimize risk, you must know what’s covered and what rules, restrictions and exceptions apply. Here’s the expert help you need.

In this 90-minute webinar, experts from Crowell & Moring’s DC-based International Trade Group explain how US export control rules specifically affect contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, consultants and manufacturers engaged in the international marketplace. You’ll learn where rights, issues and compliance responsibilities stand today and how the efforts to reform export control change requirements — and risks.

Clear guidance on EAR and ITAR plus practical risk mitigation. You’ll gain vital insights into the Export Administration Regulations and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. You’ll also explore key provisions of country-specific and non-country-specific regulations involving economic trade sanctions and embargoes. Plus, proactive risk management practices will be presented and you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for a clearer understanding of what your company can do to meet the growing challenges of US export controls. Attendees who complete the webinar will:

  • gain a high-level understanding of U.S. export controls, focusing on the EAR and the ITAR, including what items are covered under each regime, and their basic rules, restrictions and exceptions;
  • become familiar with the on-going export control reform effort, and learn what to expect as that reform effort continues to move forward;
  • develop as understanding of U.S. sanctions programs and the financial and reputational risks they pose to U.S. government contractors;
  • identify the principal changes in the ever-fluctuating landscape of U.S. sanctions programs; learn how your company can proactively identify areas of high risk, as well as develop or improve its compliance program to minimize that risk;
  • …and more!

Don’t get blindsided by compliance issues that could damage your international sales and supply chain: take this opportunity to get expert guidance on how to mitigate your company’s risks before you run afoul of new and changing US export rules.
