Complying with US Export Controls


This seminar will be a live event: an opportunity to see and hear BIS specialists present, have your questions answered, and participate in interactive exercises to expand your regulatory and compliance knowledge. Experienced BIS specialists will deliver the training in four, three-hour sessions from 9am to 12pm PDT (UTC-7) daily. The information covered will include the same topics typically covered in the two day, in-person programs: scope of the EAR, how to classify your items for export, how to apply for an export license, understanding and using license exceptions, deemed exports, de minimis and direct product rules, export clearances, export enforcement, and developing an export management and compliance program. This program will also feature a guest speaker from the Census Bureau to discuss the Automated Export System.

With the travel, budget, and time limits we all face, this program offers a timely, cost-effective, and highly accessible way to learn about the EAR and the steps to comply.
