Why Should you Attend
Most products, software, and technology exported from the United States are subject to the Export Administration Regulations, which are administered and enforced by the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security. Understanding how to navigate the EAR and their extensive jurisdictional reach is critical to doing business successfully in the global market. And as recent penalty cases show, it's especially important for foreign companies to understand how and when they must comply with the EAR.
Export Control Reform is the ongoing process of rewriting the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and the Export Administration Regulations to better define what articles and technologies are controlled, and to move many articles, especially at the part and component level, from the ITAR to the EAR. The webinar will review the changes made as a result of Export Control Reform to date and will provide examples of how the changes have affected controls and licensing.
