Export Controls

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

About

The U.S. continues to step up enforcement in all areas of international trade regulation. Criminal prosecutions, and civil and criminalfines are rising to new, unprecedented levels – with no end on sight! The Departments of State, Commerce,Treasury and Homeland Security are aggressively scrutinizing the export activities of U.S. firms and their foreign trading partners to ensure strict compliance with export controls and economic sanctions laws.

Heightened BIS, DDTC and OFAC compliance expectations, along with recent regulatory changes, have made it even more challenging for U.S. and foreign companies to maintain compliance in a global business environment. As export controls become increasingly confusing and restrictive, how can U.S. exporters implement effective internal export compliance programs without unduly hampering legitimate trade?

Now in its 12th successful year, American Conference Institute’s National Forum on Export Controls is the event that export professionals rely on for practical guidance toward achieving and maintaining global export compliance. Learn from and network with leading corporate export compliance executives from companies such as General Electric, NorthropGrumman, IBM, Honeywell, Citigroup, Eastman Chemical, Shell, United Technologies and BAE. Get critical updates and best practices for tackling your most pressing global compliance challenges. Topics will include:

  • Screening global transactions: What is necessary for effective risk mitigation
  • Minimizing the risk of diversion in export/reexport transactions
  • Reducing the risk of liability for foreign third party violationsof U.S. export/reexport controls
  • Training U.S. and foreign employees to comply with U.S. and local export controls
  • Implementing an effective global export controls compliance program
  • When and how to use the Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) license exception
  • Complying with recent changes to the de minimis rules
  • When dual-useitems can morph into “ITAR-controlled”items
  • Integrating AES into your global export data system: Complying with new Foreign Trade Regulations
  • Developing a successful U.S. licensing strategy for China exports and reexports
  • Update on EU export controls.
