Deemed Exports: Extremely Common and Commonly Misunderstood

Instructor: Joan Koenig


If your company employs foreign nationals, works with contractors who do, shares technology with entities in other countries (particularly in the EU, with its fluid work force), contracts with universities to do research, outsources IT or uses cloud servers, or does pretty much anything else that companies do in the 21st Century, you may have a deemed export or reexport risk.  Ensuring that you have a compliance plan in place to identify and address these risks can not only significantly reduce your risk, but it can also be an important mitigating factor if you (or the government) uncover a violation.

This webinar will help to identify deemed export (or reexport) risks and how to manage them (while protecting against violations of anti-discrimination laws), as well as help identify what to do when things go wrong. Among other topics, we will discuss what is considered a deemed export, what sorts of information and activities are subject to the rule, how deemed exports are impacted by Export Control Reform, how deemed exports are treated differently under the EAR and the ITAR, what types of license exceptions might be useful in a deemed export situation (e.g., STA or TSR), and how different stakeholders in your company, including Engineering/R&D, HR, IT, and others should work together to avoid costly violations. We will focus on real-world examples and procedures that work.

  • Is a license required?

    • If a license is required, who is responsible for getting a license?

  • How to set up a compliance policy, technology control plan

    • Who are the stakeholders?

    • How does this process interface with the I-129 visa process?

    • How do we structure our hiring program to prevent violations of anti-discrimination laws and regulations?
