Whew, what a year (or 3 years) it has been with the sweeping changes implemented in Export Control Reform (ECR) as well as highly publicized shifts in US export controls on Iran, Cuba, and Russia/Crimea/Ukraine.  And just as we start to get a handle on the historically significant recent changes, now the new US President promises bold changes in virtually every area of US Government policy.

Join John Black as he brings his perspective as a 32 year veteran of export controls to the table to assess the changes of 2016, the final year of ECR, and, based on his experience, what we might expect to see in 2017.

  • EAR and ITAR definition of “export”, “foreign person”, release of tech data/technology through visual inspection
  • New rules for using cloud based services and email for technology
  • Restrictions on providing access control to foreign persons
  • Highlights of the USML to CCL shifts in 2016, including “specially designed for military end use”
  • Adjustments to controls on aircraft and gas turbine engines, and related items
  • New EAR and ITAR destination control statement and its rules
  • Enforcement focus, actions, and trends
  • The Yates Memorandum: The US Government focus on penalizing individuals, not just companies
  • The implications of the historical addition of ZTE to the US export denial list
  • Migration of AES in ACE and key changes to AES requirements
  • Long anticipated changes that did not happen in 2016—What now?
  • Cuba, Iran, Russia/Crimea/Ukraine:  What happened and what is next?
  • ITAR and OFAC changes for Vietnam, Burma, and other countries
  • Highlights of the comprehensive changes to export controls on information security/encryption
  • What will happen to the ECR tasks that have not been finished?
  • Export controls under the Trump Administration in 2017:  Is change in the air?
  • The top 5 list of mistakes not to make in 2017

Never in history have US export controls undergone the dramatic relaxations seen over the past 4 years.   Rarely have we seen an incoming US President so boldly state that dramatic changes will be made across the board, including international trade rules.  As we enter the New Year with the upcoming new US Administration, now is the perfect time to take a look at where we have come during the massive relaxations and where we might end up going in 2017.

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and notes, and include video and commentary from John Black, who has been working in the export controls industry for over 30 years.
