ITAR Controls & EAR/OFAC Export Controls

Seminar Series for Non-US Companies

US Export Controls (EAR, ITAR & OFAC) as they apply to companies physically located outside of the United States. This includes non-US companies as well as parent companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates of US companies.

United States trade control laws and regulations impact companies that use or resell US-origin products, components, or technology. The US Government can impose serious penalties for US and non-US companies that fail to comply with the extra-territorial US rules to include monetary fines, a loss of US Government contracts, or a complete ban from receiving any US items. Recent Export Control Reform (ECR) changes have made it even more important for non-US companies to stay up-to-date on the regulations. These seminars offer practical explanations and advice on what the rules are and how they impact companies outside the United States. Expect to leave these seminars with an in-depth understanding of what you need to do to keep your company compliant. Our instructors are widely respected experts in the field of export compliance with over 30 years of experience in interpreting and applying the rules. You will learn:

  • How recently reformed US export rules impact a wide range of transactions outside the US
  • How the US enforces these export regulations on non-US companies
  • Practical methods of complying with US and local export regulations

IMPORTANT: In each location the ITAR Seminar will run the first two days, and the EAR/OFAC Seminar will run the last two days.
