Have you read the recent final ruling by the U.S. Department of State and Department of Commerce that changes the classification of Toxicological, Chemical, and Biological Agents, as well as Directed Energy Weapons?  Do you understand how your business operations are impacted by these changes?  The regulatory changes bring on an entirely new set of regulatory requirements under the Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR) that businesses in these fields must understand. It’s critical for companies to understand what portion of their portfolio now falls under the EAR versus what portion remains under the Department of State’s ITAR – and to update their internal export compliance program accordingly – in order to limit the risk of unintentional violations and steep government fines.

This webinar will dive into the 1X607 and 6X619 Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) under the EAR that now cover physical commodities and technologies that were formerly under the ITAR regulations.  The essential elements of the ITAR’s Category XIV/XVIII and the EAR’s relevant 600 series ECCNs, along with their associated requirements, will be reviewed.  We’ll discuss the list of items controlled, licensing requirements, license exceptions your business might be able to leverage, technology control plans, compliance program suggestions, and more. There will also be plenty of opportunity for participants to ask live questions so you walk away with an understanding of the next steps to update your export compliance program.
