Pre-Conference Workshop – ITAR Training
event requires additional registration and payment)
Export controls and compliance with the regulations has long been a complex issue for exporters. Determining agency jurisdiction and classification under the appropriate regulations is difficult and requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulations.
The classification and compliance process has only become more complex under the new Export Control Reform (ECR) initiatives and regulations. Noncompliance can be costly and even lead to loss of export privileges.
This program will; help you identify what has changed and the steps necessary to be in full compliance. Through a review of the regulations as they currently exist and particle examples the participant will gain an understanding of how to navigate ITAR, properly classifying their exports and obtaining the necessary "permission” to export.
Learn what has changed and what has not, what remains under ITAR control and what has moved to the EAR. Use compliance to your competitive advantage!

Pre-Conference Workshop – Logistics
This workshop will cover the three global supply chain areas that
cause the most consternation for companies working in a global environment:
transportation choices; documentation and regulatory requirements; and,
global supply chain management program design. We’ll address what you
need to know to assess supply chain operations, make recommendations to
companies you advise, or gain a broader base of knowledge to cover the topic
with your students. We’ll review methods of transportation, the advantages
and disadvantages of each, expectations of freight forwarders, carriers and
brokers, and the terminology and concepts you’ll need to know to have freight
discussions. In covering regulations, we’ll examine import and export
documentary requirements, compliance requirements and programs, standards and
prohibitions, and the risks of noncompliance. Putting together programs to
manage it all is what tests a company’s commitment to international business.
We’ll explore case studies of companies that have made poor choices and
suffered the consequences as well as companies that have improved company
performance as a result of their decisions.
