Essentials of U.S. Export Controls – March 14

This is an intensive, one-day program that covers the key information you need to know to comply with the EAR.  Counseling and other professionals from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will cover the major elements of the U.S. export control system for commercial exports.  This fast-paced program is ideal for those with busy schedules.

Export Control Reform – March 15

This one day training course is designed to provide in-depth exposure to core elements of the Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative.  Regulatory, compliance, and engineering officers will provide training on the key elements ranging from licensing issues to “specially designed” and license exceptions such as use of the Strategic Trade Authorization.  The course will focus on new and different compliance requirements.  This course will be useful to defense exporters with relatively limited exposure to the regulatory requirements of the Export Administration Regulations, and to exporters who now will be able to support U.S. military items without incurring International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) liability.

Recommended prerequisite:  Essentials of U.S. Export Controls or Complying with U.S. Export Controls or equivalent experience.


How to Develop an Export Compliance Program – March 16

Developing and maintaining an export 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 Compliance Program.  Agenda topics include guidance on how to establish an Export Compliance Program, strategies to enhance 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, compliance peer networking, and provides a written example of an export compliance program as well as the Office of Exporter Services January, 2017 revised Export Compliance Guidelines to assist in developing your compliance program. 
 
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.
