The US Export Controls  Seminar  is a three-day, hands-on workshop designed for all levels of expertise on export control issues. This will be the only BIS seminar offered in the Midwest in 2014 and the first time in years that the multi-day seminar has been held in Michigan.  Therefore this may be your only opportunity to learn about the regulations themselves, and to get up to speed on the most significant changes the regulations have undergone in over 20 years (the Export Control Reform Initiative), directly from BIS regulatory experts.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity!

The program will cover U.S. Government export controls (Export Administration Regulations), including:

  • types of controls
  • classifying your product
  • license requirements
  • record keeping requirements
  • export clearance
  • enforcement
  • developing an export management compliance program
  • changes under the Export Control Reform initiative
  • laws and policies on U.S. economic and trade sanctions worldwide.

There will be Q&A opportunities and opportunities at breaks for attendees to ask the government presenters their specific corporate questions dealing with their specific problems. 

An official USDOC/BIS "Certificate of Training" will be issued upon completion of program.
