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.
