About The Webinar

When handling an export transaction, it is critical to understand whether the product for export is subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Commerce/Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) or the U.S. Department of State/Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). Items of a commercial and/or dual-use nature (i.e., those with both commercial and defense applications) are subject to BIS jurisdiction and classified under the Commerce Control List pursuant to the Export Administration Regulations. Defense articles are subject to DDTC jurisdiction and classified under the U.S. Munitions List pursuant to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. Exporters must also be certain of the classification of the product for export under the Commerce Control List or U.S. Munitions List, as applicable, as that will dictate whether an export license is required. Exporters must understand issues related to jurisdiction and product classification and the impact these have on export licensing requirements and export compliance generally.
