Why You Should Attend

  • Most products exported from the U.S. are subject to export administration regulations (EAR). Some products also require a license to be exported. These requirements depend on several factors: the actual item being exported, where it is going, who is going to use it, and what they will be using it for.
  • The regulations are complex to navigate and involve multiple agencies of the U.S. government including agencies in the Department of Commerce, the Treasury Department, and the State Department.
  • The regulations are changed and improved upon over time, so even those who are familiar with them need periodic training to ensure they are aware of any updates.
  • Responsibility for export compliance rests with the exporter. There are significant administrative and criminal penalties for violations of these regulations, including significant fines, imprisonment of up to ten years, seizure/forfeiture of goods, and denial of export privileges.
  • BIS presenters will provide opportunities for Q&A and will be available during breaks to discuss any issues/challenges attendees may be facing.
