About

Government expectations and enforcement are increasing. Are you complying with technology controls?

The U.S. Government imposes the most comprehensive and far-reaching technology export restrictions. They concern the export and re-export of technology, software, technical assistance and services of U.S. origin or having even a "de minimis" amount of U.S. content. These technology controls affect not only physical shipments, but also the release of technical data or software source code to foreign nationals in the U.S. and abroad, electronic transmission of technical data or software, and hand-carried technical data, software, samples, parts, professional equipment and delivery of services. Moreover, these regulations have a global impact that few companies realize.

If your business has any involvement in international technology transfers, you must be farmiliar with the latest developments and enforcement initiatives of technology controls. Failure to comply can result in multi-million dollar civil and criminal penalties, imprisonment and the imposition of effective trade embargoes by the U.S. authorities. The long-term viability of your company could be threatened if found responsible for conducting illegal technology exports, whether you know they are legal or not.
