EAR Hardware License Exceptions Explained

If you are an exporter of hardware, are hesitant to use EAR license exceptions, or just want to better understand them, this is the webinar for you.

Upon purchase, an email will be sent that provides a link to view the webinar recording, a copy of the presentation, and a certificate of completion. Access to view the webinar recording will be available for one year from the purchase date.

This webinar will help you:

  • Learn how to get repaired products back in your customer’s hands more quickly!
  • Export some of the most sensitive items on the CCL without a license!
  • Export to US and some foreign government customers without a license!

EAR license exceptions authorize exports without a license, including some military (600 series) and space (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!

But if you make an effort to learn the exceptions, you may be rewarded. After all, the Commerce Department intentionally created license exceptions for you to use. If you know what you are doing and are thorough in your analysis, using exceptions will enhance your export compliance program, because you will be able to export faster and you won’t waste limited resources on getting unnecessary licenses.

Join us and learn the issues to address when you use an exception as we focus on the most widely used of these authorizations under the EAR. Just think: use an exception instead of a license only once because of this webinar and the savings in time, effort, and aggravation will more than pay for the cost of the webinar.

We will cover these topics and more:

  • Commonly-used ECCN-based license exceptions (including GBS, CIV, and LVS)
  • License Exception STA — a major authorization for exports of 600 series equipment and materials
  • A very useful exception for repairs and replacements (RPL)
  • An exception that may permit you to make temporary exports (TMP)
  • An exception for exports to the US Government (and certain foreign governments) abroad (GOV)
  • License Exception ENC — the exception which authorizes more exports (by value) than any other
  • Several other exceptions, some of which you can use for EAR 600 series items
  • Critical restrictions on the use of all license exceptions

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Scott Gearity, who brings nearly 20 years of consulting, training, and corporate export compliance program management experience to his clients.
