May 21-22

Exporting is the best step you can take to expand your business. With international markets and economies growing, every day they are providing new customers for US goods. Now is the time to dig into export controls and regulations and learn how to take advantage of burgeoning markets and understand this critical aspect of international trade. Join us May 21 and 22 for Essentials of US Export Controls & Export Control Reform. Attendees can choose to attend a single day seminar, or the full two-day program. See registration for details.

Essentials of Export Controls

(May 21) An intensive, one-day program that covers the key information you need to know to comply with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Counselors and other professionals from the Bureau of Industry and Security will cover the major elements of the U.S. export control system for commercial exports. This fast-paced program is ideal for those with busy schedules.

Export Control Reform Regulations

(May 22) In support of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, the Departments of Commerce and State have published rules revising the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) officially implementing Export Control Reform. The key objective of these changes is to put in place the structure, provisions and definitions required for the development of a positive control list, and allow certain munitions items controlled on the US Munitions List (USML) to move to the licensing jurisdiction of the Commerce Control List (CCL).

This seminar will provide a more in-depth understanding of these changes, assist in the transition and promote compliance with the new regulations. Topics will address: realignment of the control lists; Commerce Control List order of review; the new "600" series; definition of "specially designed;" and license exceptions.
