January 12-13 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, and other items subject to the EAR.

We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR, how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN), steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item, when you can export or reexport without applying for a license, export clearance procedures, and record keeping requirements.
