EAR Hardware and Materials Classifications: Learning By Doing

Practice Makes Perfect—A Two-Part Webinar that Combines Hands-On Exercises, Discussions, and Instruction.

Instructor: Scott Gearity


"The webinar on EAR license exceptions was very informative.  The presenter went through every exception and explained how each one worked and was very careful to also say to read the regs carefully because there was a lot of requirements when using exceptions.  I will be looking into using them instead of getting a license!"
Teresa Racette, Crane Aerospace
Attendee of Scott's previous EAR Hardware License Exceptions Explained Webinar


"Scott Gearity and John Black are extremely knowledgeable and excel in presenting practical information export compliance professionals can use in this very complex business."
Attendee of Scott's previous Export Control Reform for USML Category XII: Fire Control, Laser, Imaging, and Guidance Webinar

Getting your Export Administration Regulations (EAR) export classifications right is clearly one of the most important aspects of an export compliance program. It is also among the most difficult and time consuming. Combine the increasing enforcement of export controls with the $1.4 trillion in annual US goods exports and you clearly see that finding the correct Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is more important than ever.

In this series of two webinars we will provide the participants with classification exercises to complete prior to both webinars. During the webinars we will use a combination of instruction and discussion of the exercises for a “practice makes perfect” approach to learning how to classify hardware (i.e. "commodities") under the EAR.

In addition to the exercises, the instruction will cover these points:

  • Using the new Export Control Reform Order of Review rules

  • Knowing how to avoid the mistakes the Order of Review rules can cause you to make

  • Commerce Control List (CCL) product groups "A", "B", and "C"

  • 600 series and 9X515 ECCNs

  • Understanding EAR99

  • Special rules for semi-finished items

  • Commodity classification requests

  • Considering compliant and streamlined approaches to classifications

  • Implementing common sense internal procedures for classifications

  • Choosing practical and effective tools for making classifications easier and more accurate

This combination of hands-on exercises, expert instruction, and participation in real-time question and answer sessions will be a unique opportunity to enhance your understanding of classifications. Knowing how to do classifications correctly will give you confidence in your compliance and reduce the substantial risks associated with misclassification.

These webinars will provide PowerPoint slides and notes and include video and commentary from Scott Gearity, who has been bringing over 15 years of consulting, training, and corporate export compliance program management experience to bear for his clients. Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar; the final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees' questions.

Prerequisite: Participants should understand fundamental EAR issues and have at least basic familiarity with EAR classifications.
