EAR Licenses: The Mechanics of Determining When Licenses Are Required and Obtaining Them
Webinar: 1 CES Credit
Most commodities, software and technology exported from the United States each year are subject to the Export Administration Regulations. Often, the EAR require licenses before companies may export or reexport certain items based on their classification, destination country, end-user and end-use. Certain foreign-made items shipped from one foreign country to another may also trigger EAR reexport licensing requirements even when those transactions do not involve any U.S. parties and occur wholly outside the United States.
Knowing when a license is required, how to take advantage of license exceptions when they are available and how to apply for a license from the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, along with complying with the conditions of such licenses, are all crucial components of any export compliance program. This webinar provides step-by-step guidelines to assist companies in making accurate licensing determinations and ensuring that the proper license authorizations for exports and reexports are put into place before exports or reexports occur.
