Learn the Impact of ITAR, EAR & OFAC Controls on Non-US Companies, Affiliates, and Transactions

The Export Compliance Training Institute (ECTI), a leading provider of U.S. export controls compliance training for businesses, organizations, governments, and universities/research institutions, is pleased to present its upcoming live seminar series in Amsterdam, Netherlands in early October.

“Export controls are complex, and the rules change frequently,” said Scott Gearity, President of ECTI. “We have found that live, in-person seminars provide both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with the latest and most comprehensive instruction on compliance with United States export regulations, as well as unique opportunities for in-depth discussions with instructors and peers. Attendees leave with a solid understanding of export control rules and timely knowledge of recent changes.”

The upcoming live export compliance seminars in Amsterdam will be held October 11 through October 14, 2021. Topics to be covered include:

  • International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) Controls on Non-U.S. Transactions Seminar, October 11 and 12.
  • Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and Office of Foreign Assets Controls and Embargos (OFAC) Controls on Non-U.S. Transactions Seminar, October 13 and 14.

Participants can attend both seminars for an in-depth education on export control regulations administered by the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury as they apply to NL, EU, and other non-U.S.-based companies who use or resell U.S.-origin products, components or technology, as well as non-U.S.-located affiliates, parents, and subsidiaries of U.S. companies.

“Participants will leave these seminars with a deeper understanding of the current rules that will enable them to keep their companies in compliance,” said Gearity. “Our training gives organizations a distinct competitive advantage, as once their professionals complete our seminars, they are well-prepared to minimize the cost of compliance, diminish the risk of inadvertently violating export laws, and responsibly support the growth of the organization’s export business.”
