Export controls and compliance with regulations has long been a complex issue for exporters. Determining appropriate agency jurisdiction and classification is difficult and requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulations.

The classification and compliance process has only become more complex under various new regulations and interpretations. Noncompliance can be costly and even lead to a 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 practical examples, the participant will gain an understanding of how to navigate the ITAR & EAR, how to properly classify their exports, and how to obtain the necessary licensing and permission to export. They will learn about the new license procedures and other changes.

This program is designed to meet initial and recurring training requirements.

Learn how to use compliance as a competitive advantage!
