“Complying with U.S. Export Controls”

Tuesday, August 15 & Wednesday, August 16, 2023
Milpitas, California

This two-day program is led by BIS’s professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The seminar will also feature guest speakers from the BIS Office of Export Enforcement; the U.S. Census Bureau; and the Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control. The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements under these regulations. We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); when you can export or reexport without applying for a license; Automated Export System (AES) procedures and requirements; sanctions programs; Export Compliance Program (ECP) concepts; and real-life examples in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of “hands-on” exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company’s export activities. This one-of-a-kind program is well-suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.
