Encryption Export Controls 2017 Update

Webinar Instructor: Felice Laird

"The Encryption Session was one of the best I have attended.  Finally a session on category 5 - Information technology.  It was very informative and appreciated the mention of the 2 new ECCN's as well as details about those devices that fit 5A002.A.4."
Margie Lewis, Trade Support Specialist, Verizon

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) significantly changed the Information Security section of the Commerce Control List (Category 5 Part II) in August 2017 as a result of the 2016 Wassenaar Arrangement decision to rewrite certain Export Commodity Control Numbers (“ECCNs”).

We are offering a webinar for those individuals who want to get an update on the changes (Federal Register) as well as those new to encryption export controls. Designed for those individuals with a working knowledge of the export regulations, this webinar will focus on:

  • General discussion of the present controls on commercial encryption technology including an overview of the 2017 regulatory changes

  • Review of technical basics and the new terminology used in the Cat. 5 Part II Technical Note regarding ‘cryptography for data confidentiality’

  • Review of the implications of the removal of “Note 4” decontrol of items where information security is not the primary purpose

  • Use of publicly available encryption code in creating software for commercial sale

  • Determining the right ECCN for software, hardware and technology

  • Licensing authorities NLR, ENC, Export License

  • Recordkeeping and reporting requirements

  • Outlook for future regulatory changes

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Felice Laird who is a leading expert on US encryption export controls and has 30 years’ experience in training on US export controls.
