Classifying Aircraft Part Technology

Aerospace consistently ranks among the top US export industries. American companies sell about $140 billion worth of commercial airliners, satellites, military aircraft, engines, components, and more to customers abroad. At the same time, aerospace is among the industries most affected by International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) export controls.

Nearly every exporter of aircraft components also exports related technology. Whether it’s a drawing to a potential vendor, a maintenance manual to a customer, technical assistance to a foreign person employee, or manufacturing instructions to an offshore subsidiary, technology takes many forms and is exported for many reasons. Getting technology classifications right is not always easy, but that does not make it any less essential to complying with the regulations.

This webinar will focus specifically on determining the jurisdiction and classification of technology related to both military and civil aircraft parts. It’s easy to become frustrated with export controls because they are complex and can seem illogical. Accurate classification is not an insurmountable task. ECTI can help you to understand the resources and steps you need to get the job done. Make better technology classification decisions and avoid licensing violations.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The definition and scope of technical data in the ITAR
  • The relationship between ITAR-controlled aircraft parts and technical data in USML Category VIII
  • “Public domain” and other carve-outs from the ITAR
  • Understanding how the EAR defines technology and key related terms
  • What the Commerce Control List Order of Review means for technology
  • Common aircraft part-related technology ECCNs in Categories 7, 9, and more
  • Identifying those often overlooked, non-standard technology ECCNs which could apply to your exports
  • “Published” and further information not subject to the EAR

ECTI’s Scott Gearity will lead the webinar with PowerPoint slides, live video, and audio commentary. Scott is a longtime export compliance trainer, consultant, and manager who trains thousands of people a year worldwide on US export controls and sanctions.

Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar; the final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees’ questions. Each registrant will receive a copy of the presentation, certificate of completion, and access to the webinar recording. Register even if you cannot attend; we will send you access to the webinar recording along with a copy of the presentation!

Do you also need help with aircraft parts classification? We are offering another webinar, Export Control Classification for Aircraft Parts on March 11, 2020 that will focus specifically on determining the jurisdiction and classification of both military and civil aircraft parts and components.
