Best Practices for an Export Compliance Program

Posted January 27, 2014

Today it is not just exporters of military or dual-use (military/civilian) goods that need to be concerned about export compliance – everyone from Internet sellers to traditional shippers of otherwise innocuous products such as flowers and clothing needs to make sure they have an export compliance program in place. This webinar will provide you with the tools to create an effective export compliance program, which can not only help you avoid violating export laws and regulations but can also be instrumental in mitigating the penalties assessed when things go awry.

Key Topics:

  • identifying the export controls on your products and technology
  • understanding distinctions between the agencies that oversee the export and reexport of goods and technology
  • creating a technology control plan that allows access only to authorized parties
  • screening programs and when to conduct screening of transactions
  • licensing authority
  • training of staff
  • reporting violations and when to file a prior disclosure - recordkeeping
