Defense contractors and subcontractors deal with unique export compliance concerns, particularly as it relates to their sourcing of goods and materials, relationships with international partners, and foreign national personnel. It’s very easy to become frustrated with export rules and regulations because they can seem illogical and hard to follow.

Unfortunately, non-compliance can cause hefty fines, denial of export privileges, and prison sentences, so it is important for all facets of business (especially those in the defense contracting industry) to understand the key issues in order to make compliance part of their daily routine. Doing this will ensure that they are an invaluable resource to their company’s compliance program.

The objective of this webinar is to discuss many particular aspects of export controls compliance that apply to defense contractors and subcontractors. We will cover the topics that are specifically related to your industry in order for you to reduce risk and be more successful.  We will provide you with the tools to maximize efficiency while still staying compliant.

Our topics will include:

  • Why export controls are important to U.S. national security
  • Why export violations can be crippling to a defense contractor
  • FAR and DFAR export control clauses and flowdown requirements
  • International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration requirements for defense contractors, including non-U.S. employers
  • Export license requirements for items with a military end-use/end-user
  • Particular restrictions that apply to items that have recently become controlled under the so-called “600 Series” of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) Commodity Control List as a result of export control reform
  • ITAR specific export licensing vehicles, including Technology Assistance Agreements (TAA’s), Manufacturing License Agreements (MLA’s), and Warehousing License Agreements (WLA’s)
  • Avoiding dealings that fall afoul of U.S. arms embargoes
  • Preventing unauthorized releases of technical data to foreign persons

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Mary Edquist who is a national security law and export controls specialist. She will explain why compliance is important to U.S. national security and why non-compliance creates big business risks, particularly for defense contractors and subcontractors. In this webinar, she will provide a significant amount of targeted information to benefit defense contractors and subcontractors and the export compliance programs of their organizations.

The intent of this webinar is to help your company understand some of the key export control requirements that apply to defense contractors. It is not our objective to make you experts on export controls — such as understanding the many complexities of the term “specially designed” —  in a 90 minute webinar.  Further training and practice is required for that level of expertise. You will, however, leave the training with invaluable, detailed information specific to your government contracting and/or subcontracting responsibilities that will enhance and bolster your company’s ongoing compliance efforts.
