Consent agreements are a feared, but recurring feature of the export control and enforcement landscape.  The recent announcement of the ZTE consent agreement signals that the Trump Administration has not stepped away from this enforcement option and, in fact, is willing to apply it to new issue areas and regulatory regimes in order to further Administration priorities.  This webinar will be valuable to compliance executives and leads, empowered officials, export leads, and practitioners interested in knowing more about trade compliance consent agreements and monitorships.  Participants will learn what a consent agreement is, when the Government imposes them, how to avoid them, and what to do if your company becomes subject to one. This webinar will cover:

    • Legal Basis
    • History
