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 control the export and re-export of technology, software, technical assistance and services of U.S. origin and foreign-origin technology or software having more than a "de minimis" amount of U.S. content. These 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 is involved in any form in international technology transfers, you must be up to date on 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.

The American Conference Institute has developed the International Technology Transfers publication to provide you with an intensive, up to the minute review of the most complex issues that arise in implementing an effective technology export compliance program. Get practical corporate perspectives on how best to comply in an era of increased scrutiny, including:

  • How the deemed export rule affects corporate human resource departments and employee movement within organizations
  • When government review is required prior to export of encryption technology and software
  • How to control technical discussions of scientists and engineers
  • Establishing effective in-house export classification procedures
  • ITAR enforcement and compliance trends
  • Restrictions on electronic transfers or technical assistance from the U.S. in support of overseas transactions
  • Contents & Contributors
