Registration Deadline Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods. We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); when you can export or re-export without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; Export Management Compliance Program (EMCP) concepts; and real life examples in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on" exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company's export activities. This program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) will present their current embargos and sanctions.

Lawyers interested in Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits are eligible to receive fourteen (14) general credits from this training. Accreditation notices will be available at the event.
