American Conference Institute’s 11th


A Deep Dive into the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, Export Control Reform, and How to Implement and Monitor an Eff ective ITAR Compliance Program

February 27 – 28, 2014 | Andaz San Diego Hotel | San Diego, CA

Whether You are a Large, Mid-Size or Small Company, You Will Gain Practical Tools for How to Comply with Key ITAR Requirements Impacting Your Business.

Back in San Diego by popular demand, American Conference Institute’s acclaimed ITAR Boot Camp is an in-depth, practical nuts and bolts course on how to comply with the ITAR.

Amid increased ITAR enforcement, large, mid-size and small companies that deal with defense articles services or related technical data must ensure that their export practices and global supply chains comply with the ITAR. An exporter that does not have a handle on key requirements can unknowingly violate strict provisions of the ITAR — and incorrectly assume that their articles, technical data or services aren’t even subject to the ITAR!


Whether you are a first, second or third-tier exporter, export control reform will affect ITAR licensing and classification requirements, and will mostly likely have a deep impact on your business operations. No matter how small or how big the effect, it is imperative that your trade compliance personnel manages the new regulatory framework, and adjust compliance practices accordingly. From changes in definitions, to the migration of items to Commerce Department jurisdiction, 2013 is determined to be a monumental year for exporters. Equally, many complex ITAR compliance requirements will remain, and it is critical to stay up to speed on the latest best practices for reducing heightened penalty risks.
