Have you read all 1000+ pages of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)? Do you need someone to walk you through the core principles of the EAR and help you identify risk areas within your daily business activities? ECTI has you covered.

In this 4-webinar series we will cover the key principles of the EAR and provide practical advice on how to comply with them. This series will provide both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with detailed training on the most important aspects of the EAR. We’ve pored over the regulations to bring you what you need to know and understand in order to build a solid foundation of compliance for your company.

Webinars in the Series:

Cornerstones of EAR Compliance: Controlled Items, Activities, & Hardware Classification
APRIL 2, 2019    1:00-2:30 PM EDT

In this webinar we will walk you through how to determine if the activity and item you are trying to export is regulated by the EAR. Next, we’ll turn to one of the most difficult and important export compliance tasks – determining the classification in the Commerce Control List (CCL) for the items you export. The CCL uses detailed and complex criteria to define the classifications of many items. We will break down the critical elements you need to know in order to find the accurate ECCN for your product.

Cornerstones of EAR Compliance: Technology & Software Classification, and No License Required (NLR) Determination
APRIL 10, 2019    1:00-2:30 PM EDT

We will highlight and explain the key areas of the CCL and the EAR that play a decisive role in determining the ECCN for your technology and software. The EAR and CCL have changed in major ways over the past several years. Export Control Reform (ECR) did not simplify classification rules. In fact, ECR made the rules more complex and made the CCL much longer than before. When was the last time you took a fresh look at these changes?

After you’ve determined that you have something that is subject to the EAR and you’ve classified it, it’s time to find out if it’s eligible for No License Required (NLR). The question, “Is this export eligible for NLR?” is an important one that can change how you move forward with a transaction within your business. The answer lies within the EAR and is dependent on the ECCN and the country of destination for your item. This webinar will walk you through the process of NLR determination for hardware, software, and technology.

Cornerstones of EAR Compliance: Understanding License Exceptions & End-Use(r) Controls
APRIL 17, 2019    1:00-2:30 PM EDT

EAR license exceptions authorize exports without a license, including some military (600-Series) and space-related (9×515) items. Still, many exporters seek licenses even when an exception is available because they prefer the comfort factor of having an export license — and that is certainly understandable because some of the exceptions are complex and confusing, not to mention that some of the restrictions that prohibit you from using an exception are not even written in the exception itself!

Considering end-use and end-user-based controls is a key element in determining if you can proceed with your transaction. After you have determined if your export is eligible for NLR or a license exception you still must stop and examine if there are any catch-all controls that would prohibit you from making the export. This webinar will go over the relatively easy-to-miss circumstances that could cause your export to require a license.

Cornerstones of EAR Compliance: License Application Process & Export Clearance
APRIL 24, 2019    1:00-2:30 PM EDT

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) form 748P is used by exporters for applying for export licenses, reexport licenses, and classification requests. Knowing how to use the electronic filing system, as well as how to fill out the form completely, and correctly, is necessary in order to keep your business running. In this webinar we will walk you through the web-based system (SNAP-R) and explain how to tell the story of your application with the Who, What, and How of your transaction to BIS. We will also go over certain support documents that may be required.

Are you ready to export? Do you know what documents and filings you need to make that export? After you have determined if you can use NLR, a license exception, or you have an export/reexport license approved, the party isn’t over. Before you proceed there is another set of regulations that governs the actual shipment of the item – the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR). This creates more hoops to jump through before you are ready to ship. This webinar will walk you through both EAR and FTR requirements for export clearance. If you’ve come this far in the exporting process, why miss something small now?

These webinars will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Scott Gearity, who brings over 20 years of consulting, training, and corporate export compliance program management experience to the webinars.

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