In the wake of the Administration’s efforts to reform US export controls, the resulting Export Administration Regulations (EAR) now govern a surprisingly wide array of commercial, “dual-use,” and military items. Rules have loosened for some goods and technologies, but tightened for others.

For items on the Commerce Control List (CCL), authorization for export, re-export or transfer may now be required. Even US items not listed on the CCL may require an export license to export to certain destinations or end-users. And when controlled technology is released to a non-US person, it is considered to be an export to that person’s home country -- even if the transfer happens in the US. Even emailing controlled information outside of the US could be considered a violation!

Violating the EAR can cut off your export privileges, trigger major civil and criminal penalties and even lead to prison time.  Here’s the guidance you need to mitigate those risks, starting immediately.

Register now for The Surprising Scope of the Export Administration Regulation: Compliance Strategies for US Goods, Technologies and Information.

This 90-minute webinar reveals EAR’s impact on US goods and technologies exported or released within the US to a non-US person. Christopher Skinner from Squire Patton Boggs, draws on expertise with US export controls, custom regulations and US economic sanctions to explain the basics of the EAR and how to develop compliance strategies that reduce your risks of facing severe penalties—and even prison time!

See the full context of export controls! In addition to details on the EAR itself, you’ll gain critical insights into how it fits within the larger system of US export controls and sanctions, including the United States Munitions List (USML), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Commerce Control List (CCL). Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to build a compliance strategy that helps you avoid costly EAR violations. Attendees who complete the webinar will:

  • Understand the role and scope of the EAR within the larger system of US export controls and economic sanctions regimes;
  • Learn about specific goods, software and technology that are controlled under the EAR and how to classify those items on the CCL;
  • Explore export licensing and license exceptions;
  • Learn how Export Control Reform affects the EAR and military items not controlled under the EAR;
  • Gain insights on today’s best compliance strategies;
  • And more!

Remember, the EAR covers more goods and technologies than you realize. With penalties so severe, this is no time for guesswork. Don’t miss this chance to learn where rules have tightened—and changed—and how to implement the right compliance strategy.
