Export Enforcement & Investigations

About

Can your company afford to be the target of an export enforcement action?

Export enforcement activities by the U.S. government are in the spotlight. The political pressure to toughen the enforcement of U.S. export controls has never been greater than under the current Administration. Consequently, both civil and criminal enforcement of U.S. export controls has increased substantially, with the government obtaining many criminal convictions, imposing prison terms and collecting millions of dollars in civil and criminal penalties. Big and small companies are targeted as well as individuals, including corporate officers. In addition, some U.S. export controls reach beyond the United States and apply to activities of foreign affiliates of U.S. companies and foreign companies that buy U.S. origin products.

Because export enforcement actions tend to be high profile, being the target may have enormous consequences, including grueling investigations, hefty monetary penalties and negative publicity. Is your company prepared for better government screening of export transactions and a higher priority given to the enforcement of export control crimes?

ACI's "National Forum on Export Enforcement and Investigations" will provide you with, information on the most complex issues that arise during export control enforcement actions.
