Complying with U.S. Export Controls

This 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 re-export without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; Export Management Compliance Program (EMCP) 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 one-of-a-kind program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR. Continuing legal education credit (MCLE) is available, and varies with the length of each seminar, for California State Bar members.

losangelesApril 1-2, 2020, 14th Annual Export Control Forum

The Export Control Forum will return to Southern California this Spring with a full agenda dedicated to recent developments in the export control field. This day-and-a-half conference will provide a convenient, West Coast alternative to the Annual Conference on Export Controls that BIS has conducted in Washington, D.C. for 30 years. This year’s Forum will feature numerous regulatory, policy, licensing and enforcement experts from the principal U.S. export control agencies. As in years past, the event will include a networking opportunity at the close of the first day, where participants may interact with the speakers and other attendees in a more congenial environment. For those interested in showcasing their products or services, the conference will also offer the opportunity to be an exhibitor, facilitating your ability to reach many of the most experienced professionals in the field. We truly look forward to presenting this event on the West Coast and hope to see you there!

For the latest information on the content of the Export Control Forum, please contact the BIS Western Regional Office at 949-660-0144 or 408-998-8806.

The Export Control Forum details the significant changes that have recently occurred and offers a “look ahead” for developments you can expect in the future.  It is not a basic, “how-to” course.  If you are new to the export control arena, we encourage you to attend one of the many “Complying with U.S. Export Controls” seminars BIS offers throughout the country.  Those events cover the Export Administration Regulations in a step-by-step manner, enabling you to understand and comply with relevant export controls.

2. Authority. Pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 of Executive Order (E.O.) 11753, the PECSEA was established on June 1, 1976, as a subordinate committee of the President's Export Council. E.O. 12131 (May 4,1979) revoked E.O. 11753, but allowed the Council and established subordinate subcommittees to continue to function, and granted the Export Council the authority to establish, with the concurrence of the Secretary of Commerce, subordinate committees, until December 31,1980. The President's Export Council and its authority were continued by successive Executive Orders, the most recent of which is E.O. 13585 of September 30, 2011.

The PECSEA will function solely as an advisory body and comply with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended, 5 U.S.C. App.

3. Objectives and Scope of Activities. The PECSEA will advise on matters pertinent to the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2401 et seq.), the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR Parts 730-799), and related statutes and regulations, principally on United States policies of encouraging trade with all countries with which the United States has diplomatic or trading relations and of controlling trade for national security, foreign policy, and short supply reasons.

The PECSEA will draw on the expertise of its members to provide advice and to make recommendations on ways to minimize the adverse impact of export controls on U.S. business while protecting U.S. national security, fostering U.S. foreign policy goals, and safeguarding commodities in short supply.

4. Description of Duties.The PECSEA advises the U.S. Government on manners and issues pertinent to implementation of the Export Administration Act, as amended, and related statutes. These issues relate to U.S. export controls mandated by law for national security, foreign policy, and short supply reasons.

5. Agency or Official to Whom the Committee Reports. The PECSEA Chairperson reports to the Secretary of Commerce through the Chairperson of the President's Export Council.

6. Support. The Assistant Secretary for Export Administration will provide the administrative and staff services, support, and facilities for the PECSEA.

7. Estimated Annual Operating Costs and Staff Years. The estimated annual operating cost of the PECSEA is $27,550, which includes 0.3 person-years of staff support.

8. Designated Federal Officer (DFO). The DFO will be a full-time or permanent part-time Federal employee, appointed in accordance with agency procedures. The DFO will approve or call all of the committee meetings, prepare and approve all meeting agendas, attend all committee meetings, adjourn any meeting when the DFO determines adjournment to be in the public interest, and chair meetings when directed to do so by the official to whom the advisory committee reports.

9. Estimated Number and Frequency of Meetings. The PECSEA will meet approximately four times annually, based on the recommendation of the Chairperson, and at the call of the Secretary of Commerce or the Secretary's designee. The agenda of each meeting is subject to prior approval of the Secretary or the Secretary's designee.

10. Membership and Designation. The PECSEA will be composed of approximately 25 members, drawn from among members of the President's Export Council, high-level Federal government officials, and representatives of business and industry who are exporters of those goods and technical data that are presently under control for national security, foreign policy, or short supply reasons or are proposed for such control, balanced to the extent possible among large and small firms. Members shall be appointed by the Secretary of Commerce and shall serve at the Secretary's discretion. Inasmuch as information classified for national security reasons will be provided to the PECSEA, all members will be cleared for access thereto.

One or more Vice Chairpersons of the PECSEA may be selected by the Under Secretary for Industry and Security, Bureau of Industry and Security, from among the membership of the Council or the PECSEA, with the concurrence of the PECSEA Chairperson.

12. Recordkeeping. The records of the PECSEA, formally and informally established subcommittees, or other subgroups of the committee, shall be handled in accordance with General Records Schedule 26. Item 2 or other approved agency records disposition schedule. These records shall be available for public inspection and copying, subject to the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.
