“Throwback” Wednesday Webinar

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020
10:00 to 11:30 a.m. PDT (1:00 to 2:30 p.m. EDT)

Join our special guest speaker Kevin Wolf, former BIS Assistant Secretary for Export Administration, who will field your questions about recent updates to the Export Administration Regulations

This webinar will feature Kevin J. Wolf, Partner in Akin Gump’s international trade practice, based in Washington, D.C. Prior to joining Akin Gump, Mr. Wolf served as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration with the Bureau of Industry and Security, where he developed and implemented policies pertaining to export administration issues, particularly the licensing requirements of EAR.

He also spearheaded the Export Control Reform effort, which resulted in major changes to the EAR and ITAR, and generated lots of questions from industry.  While at BIS, Mr. Wolf held weekly public teleconferences where he would answer questions about the reform effort and the regulations in general.  Although he is no longer with the government, our webinar will echo those calls, particularly with respect to recent China-focused changes to the EAR.

Participants will be encouraged to submit questions in advance so that Kevin and moderator Dan Fisher-Owens can be sure to address the most pressing questions about these new rules. Participants may also submit questions about other EAR compliance issues, which will be addressed if time permits.  You can submit your questions from the registration page in the space provided or email our office at paeiadmin@paei.org noting “Throwback” Questions in the subject line.

The webinar will focus on the following topics

  • Huawei-specific Foreign Direct Product Rule
  • Update to Military End-User and End-Use regulations
