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.

MANHATTAN U.S. ATTORNEY ANNOUNCES ARREST OF IRANIAN NATIONAL

WHO PROCURED SUPPLIES FOR IRANIAN PETROCHEMICAL COMPANIES

Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Sidney Simon, Special Agent-in-Charge, Department of Commerce, Office of Export Enforcement, New York Field Office, announced today the unsealing of charges against SAEED TALEBI, an Iranian national, in connection with a scheme to illegally export from the United States to Iran parts and goods designed for use in industrial operations. TALEBI, 40, was arrested yesterday at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he arrived in the United States, and was presented and arraigned today in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew J. Peck.

According to the Indictment unsealed today:

On numerous occasions throughout 2011, TALEBI and others, worked to ship industrial parts and goods from United States-based firms to Dubai, acting through a company identified in the Indictment as “Company-1.” These items were then to be sent to various petrochemical companies located in Iran. Federal criminal law generally prohibits shipments of goods from the United States to Iran in the absence of an export license issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control. TALEBI did not have such a license. In the course of this scheme, TALEBI also caused money to be wired to the United States, including over $300,000, that was sent to a bank account in Manhattan.

The Indictment charges TALEBI with one count of conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, together with Executive Orders and United States Treasury regulations, and one count of conspiring to commit money laundering. Each count carries a maximum sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment.

Mr. Bharara praised the extraordinary investigative work of the New York Field Office of the Department of Commerce’s Office of Export Enforcement. Mr. Bharara also thanked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, for its assistance.

This prosecution is being handled by the Office’s Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane T. Stansbury is in charge of the prosecution.

The charges contained in the Indictment are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
