How to Develop an Export Management and Compliance Program

Developing and maintaining an export management and compliance program is highly recommended to ensure that export transactions comply with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and to prevent export control violations.

This one-day workshop provides an overview of the steps a company may take to implement an internal Export Management and Compliance Program. Agenda topics include guidance on how to establish an EMCP; strategies to improve your company’s compliance program; how to avoid common compliance errors; and how to build a solid framework for your company’s compliance program. This program includes small group discussion, hands-on exercises, one-on-one counseling opportunities, and compliance peer networking. This program will be led by senior export compliance specialists from the Bureau of Industry and Security.

Note: The information presented in this program is not a legal requirement of the Export Administration Regulations. It is intended to give informational advice and guidance based on industry best practices in the field of compliance.
