The contest featured accusations of inappropriate ties with Russia, recriminations over the “worst deal ever” in Iran, questions over the Obama Administration’s opening to Cuba, and more. As the dust begins to settle, and the presidency of Donald Trump takes shape, exporters are wondering what this all means for them.

Over the past few years, export control and sanctions regulations have changed at an unprecedented pace and in important ways. The Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury have introduced many significant changes to controls on countries and regions including Cuba, Iran, Hong Kong, India, Russia, Ukraine, and Sudan. In many of these cases the amended regulations impose new export license requirements based on the classification, end-use, or end-user.

In this webinar, we will review recently-adopted country- and region-based sanctions and export control policies, prospects for new directions in the Trump Administration, and practical guidance on how to manage these issues within your compliance program. Join us for this webinar and participate as we discuss these and other questions:

  • What is the current state of sanctions on Russia? What authority does the new president have to alter course?
  • Does the Iran deal allow U.S. firms to export there? Is a license necessary? What did the deal actually change about U.S. sanctions?
  • What does the normalization of relations with Cuba mean for exporters? What is and is not permitted now?
  • What does the new OFAC general license for Sudan mean?
  • What sorts of restrictions exist on exports to military end-users and end-uses in China, Russia, Venezuela, and elsewhere?
  • What is U.S. export control policy toward Hong Kong vs. China? How has this changed?

This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Scott Gearity, who has been bringing over 15 years of consulting, training, and corporate export compliance program management experience to bear for his clients. Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar; the final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees’ questions.
