Pittsburgh PAJanuary 30-31 2019  Pittsburgh, PA Complying with U.S. Export Controls

 

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, 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. Technical, policy, and enforcement professionals from BIS, as well as specialists from other agencies such as the Bureau of the Census, will participate.

Industrial Base Assessment: U.S. Space Industry ‘Deep Dive’

Survey for Universities

Overview

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), in coordination with the U.S. Air Force, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Reconnaissance Office is undertaking a survey and assessment of the U.S. space industrial base supply chain network.  The principal purpose of this project is to gain an understanding of the complicated network supporting the development, production and sustainment of products and services across the defense, intelligence community, civil and commercial space sectors.  Historically, the U.S. Government has had limited visibility into the issues and challenges facing the lower tiers of the space industrial base.

By working together, this joint survey is intended to lessen the burden on respondents who would otherwise be subjected to multiple agency surveys.  Information collected will include government/commercial revenue, financial and operational health, employment and skills, production capacity, ownership, unique capabilities and technologies, and other topics. The subsequent single database highlighting multiple supplier tiers will allow for: analysis of organizations that support respective service/agency programs; better understanding of the interdependencies among agencies, programs, and suppliers; identification of signs of financial, economic, workforce and other competitiveness problems that could be impacted by declining defense and civil space budgets; evaluation of the need for technology infusion; Title III funding and other strategic investments and; development of targeted planning and acquisition strategies.

The information collected from all survey respondents may be used publicly in aggregated form, but at no time will such reporting identify your specific organization.  All information submitted to BIS is protected as Business Confidential under provisions of the Defense Production Act (DPA) of 1950, as amended.  Survey responses are also exempt from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

Response Obligations

Your organization has been identified as a direct or an indirect supplier of products and/or services to the U.S. Government for space-related applications. Your organization is required by federal law under 50 U.S.C. App Sec 2155 to complete this survey within 30 days of this request.
