The two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods. We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); when you can export or reexport without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; an overview of the Export Compliance Management Program (ECMP) concepts; and real life examples in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on" exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company's export activities. This program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.
A representative from the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) will discuss their latest sanctions and embargos.
The instructors are experienced export policy specialists and enforcement personnel from BIS's field offices and other agencies. The instructors will be available throughout the seminar to answer your questions on how the export regulations affect the export activities of your organization or client.
