The Bureau of Industry & Security Program 2019

April 30 @ 8:30 am - May 1 @ 4:30 pm

$500

Complying with U.S. Export Controls

This two-day program is led by BIS 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 US export control requirements under these regulations.

The workshop will explain:
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 Compliance Program (ECP) 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 one-of-a-kind program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.  Continuing legal education credit (MCLE) is available, and varies with the length of each seminar, for CA State Bar members.  The instructors are experienced export policy specialists, and enforcement personnel fro BIS field offices and are available throughout the seminar to answer your questions.

This event has been approved for 13 CES/MES credit
