Live Webinar: Parties of Concern: What You Need to Know

October 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


In this webinar, we will look at U.S. export restrictions for particular end uses and end users, with a focus on recent developments. We will include a discussion of the Entity List, recent expansions and complexities, and the Military End Users list as well. The speaker will review the policy bases for these lists, the need for due diligence to extend beyond these lists, the restrictions they impose on the listed parties, and the compliance obligations they create. In addition, this webinar will cover what to do if a company learns that it has not complied with these compliance obligations, how to conduct and manage investigations related to these violations, and navigating the process for removal from these lists. The main points of emphasis will be the increased importance of these lists in this era of global trade enforcement, identifying specific tips for compliance with these rules, and identifying common pitfalls or traps for the unwary in this area.

This webinar will provide insight on how to understand and comply with complex end use and end user requirements in the trade space. In particular, the webinar will cover:
     • The BIS Entity List and its growth, particularly in China and Russia
     • The military end user rules of EAR Section 744.21 and the recently adopted Military End Users list
     • What each of these lists and regulations is designed to accomplish on a policy level
     • What restrictions they impose on U.S. and non-U.S. persons
     • How to comply with obligations imposed by these lists
     • What to do if a company learns that it has not complied with obligations related to these lists
     • Conducting investigations related to potential violations of obligations imposed by these lists
     • Defending enforcement actions related to potential violations of the list-related requirements
     • Navigating the process of removal from the lists
