ITAR Boot Camp

A Deep Dive into the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and the Impact of Export Control Reform - How to Implement an Effective ITAR Compliance Program

Tuesday, February 24 to Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Hotel Solamar, San Diego, CA

As You Weather the Export Control Transition and Evolving Penalty Risks, Ensure That You Have the Latest Best Practices for Classification, Licensing and ITAR Compliance Program Implementation

U.S. enforcement agencies continue to levy steep financial penalties for ITAR violations - not to mention the subsequent reputational damage and lost business. Strengthening your understanding of USML-CCL migration, jurisdictional determinations, licensing requirements, and other core ITAR requirements remain crucial for weathering this highly transitional, evolving regulatory environment.

Protecting your business requires vigilant development, implementation and monitoring of an effective ITAR compliance program. With export control reform changing the ITAR licensing and classification landscapes, it is imperative to stay up to speed on how to apply complex, technical ITAR requirements to your export transactions.

ACI’s acclaimed ITAR Boot Camp is designed to take you through a comprehensive, step-by-step discussion on the essentials of ITAR compliance – delivering nuts and bolts strategies that you can only gain by face-to-face benchmarking and learning with government decision-makers and industry experts.
