"Export Control Reform" April 15, 2014 Los Angeles, California

This one day 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 (EAR), and to exporters who now will be able to support U.S. military items without incurring International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) liability.

Continuing legal education credit (MCLE) is available, and varies with the length of each seminar, for California State Bar members.
