November 19, 2014

Sheraton Stations Square

 Pittsburgh, PA

 

Technology Controls

This intermediate level half-day program will offer a comprehensive look at how to comply with the U.S. export and reexport controls relating to technology and software. Discussion will focus on the regulatory requirements relating to technology and software, including what is considered an export or reexport of technology or software; the kinds of technology and software subject to the EAR; how to determine the Export Control Classification Number; what license exceptions are available; and the unique application requirements of technology and software. BIS technical and policy specialists also will discuss important export control issues that may arise in the employment of foreign nationals and for foreign items incorporating, or produced from, controlled U.S.-origin software and technology. 

Encryption Controls

This program is an in-depth session that will focus on the unique provisions related to encryption under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS) encryption specialists will cover a variety of topics, including how items with encryption functionality are classified under the EAR; how the provision for "mass market" encryption may apply to products; license exceptions for encryption source code (open source and proprietary) and for exports to U.S. subsidiaries and certain eligible countries; encryption registration, classification and reporting requirements; Encryption Licensing Arrangements; conditions placed on encryption licenses, and encryption technology issues.

Recommended prerequisite: Essentials of Export Controls or Complying with U.S. Export Controls or equivalent experience.
