Why Should You Attend:

Knowing what is meant by ECCN - the Export Control Classification Number - is of absolute importance for any U.S. exporter. While understanding the number is simple enough, navigating this critical export classification process is less so. It is essential to understand and identify items for export control purposes. Everyone from ocean freight forwarders to U.S. product manufacturers can benefit from knowing exactly what the ECCN is and how it is critical to your business.

After attending this webinar, you will have a comprehensive understanding of export administration regulations, export licensing, and the roles played by various export enforcement agencies. Plus, you’ll have detailed knowledge about industry components, including HTSUS numbers, EAR 99 designations, other “basket” designations, and more. The American export industry is evolving - make sure you are positioned to take advantage of key changes.
