Mastering the Export Administration Regulations
Webinar: 1.5 CES Credits
The overwhelming majority of products and technology that are exported from the United States each year are subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which are administered and enforced by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
Understanding how to navigate these regulations, classify items per the Commerce Control List, determine licensing requirements, and ensure compliance with the myriad of export/reexport requirements outlined in the EAR is critical to the success of U.S. companies marketing their products in foreign markets. More importantly, severe civil and/or criminal penalties may be assessed against unwary companies that run afoul of the EAR.
Designed for both novices and experienced exporters needing a refresher or update on EAR requirements, as well as an overview of the recent changes resulting from the Export Control Reform initiative, this webinar details the essential requirements that companies need to know in order to master the EAR.
