How to Improve Export Compliance with Effective Audits

April 21, 2020
1:00-2:30 PM EDT
Instructor: Felice Laird

All participants will receive a questionnaire for use in developing auditing tools!

Both State and Commerce Departments recommend and expect regular audits as part of their compliance program guidelines. Despite their negative image, export compliance audits are one of the most effective tools for improving and validating your compliance program. Whenever possible, audits should not be about digging to see how many violations you can find. Instead, audits should strive to find the weaknesses in your compliance program and spot clear options for making cost-effective improvements.

 

Classifying Aircraft Part Technology

April 22, 2020
1:00-2:30 PM EDT
Instructor: Scott Gearity

Aerospace consistently ranks among the top US export industries. American companies sell about $140 billion worth of commercial airliners, satellites, military aircraft, engines, components, and more to customers abroad. At the same time, aerospace is among the industries most affected by International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) export controls.

This webinar will focus specifically on determining the jurisdiction and classification of technology related to both military and civil aircraft parts. It’s easy to become frustrated with export controls because they are complex and can seem illogical. Accurate classification is not an insurmountable task. ECTI can help you to understand the resources and steps you need to get the job done. Make better technology classification decisions and avoid licensing violations.

 

Hitting the Mark – Classification under the Harmonized System & Schedule B Code

May 14, 2020
1:00-2:30 PM EDT
Instructor: Melissa Proctor

The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (“Harmonized System”) is used by the United States and more than 150 countries for the classification of merchandise that is traded around the world. For importers, the correct classification of goods is critical for determining the duty rates that apply to imported goods, free trade agreement and special trade program eligibility, the applicability of antidumping or countervailing duties, and satisfying their “reasonable care” obligations. Incorrect classification can lead to additional duty liability, penalties, and government scrutiny. For exporters, understanding the Harmonized System is equally important as its principles drive the classification of exported goods under the Schedule B Code which is vital for U.S. export compliance.
