Deciphering Deemed Exports

It’s a routine event — one which happens thousands of times a day across the United States. Someone begins work in the US as an engineer, researcher or academic. The location could be a tech company in Santa Clara, a defense contractor in St. Louis or a university in New England, but the question is the same — is an export control violation imminent? And let’s not limit ourselves to employees. The same question could be asked when considering foreign customers, contractors, suppliers and visitors.

The deemed export rule is one of the least intuitive aspects of the US export control system. Most people understand that sending something out of the US constitutes an export. Taking the concept a step further, it is not a huge leap to explain that the “something” being exported is defined to include technology subject to either the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) or International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). What is not obvious to most businesses is that a release of technology to a foreign person inside the US is an export. This is the crux of the deemed export rule.

Join us for this webinar and participate as we learn how to analyze deemed exports, work through case studies and discuss these questions:

  • What technology and software is subject to the rule?
  • What sort of information and activities are NOT subject to the rule?
  • Who is a foreign person?
  • How do the EAR and ITAR differ in their concepts and licensing of deemed exports?
  • Are there any alternatives to applying for a license?
  • How do I know if a BIS or DDTC license is necessary and how do I go about obtaining one?
  • How does the deemed export licensing process interact with US Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-129?
  • How should I treat US person employees of foreign firms?
  • What sort of procedures do I need?

This webinar 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 bear for his clients.
