ITAR COMPLIANCE

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

About

There Has Never Been a More Crucial Time to Attend this Event!

ITAR enforcement has become increasingly heavy-handed. DDTC, the Department of Justice, ICE and the FBI are enhancing their interagency cooperation and actively targeting U.S. exporters that violate the strict provisions of the ITAR. Now more than ever, companies that deal with ITAR-controlled items or technical data must ensure that their export practices and global supply chains are in compliance – or risk harsh penalties, and, in some cases, imprisonment.

In the current economic crisis, U.S. exporters cannot afford fatal errors in applying complex ITAR requirements. Protecting your business requires vigilant development, implementation and monitoring of nothing less than an effective ITAR compliance program. Toward that end, it is crucial to stay up-to-date on the latest regulatory changes, guidelines and enforcement actions, and successfully overcome real-life ITAR compliance challenges that can threaten your bottom line.

At American Conference Institute’s 4th National Forum on ITAR Compliance, an exceptional faculty of senior business, legal and government officials will provide attendees with best practices and crucial updates on civil and criminal ITAR enforcement, licensing and compliance, as well as practical advice on how to successfully implement internal ITAR controls. Topics will include:

  • New DDTC Agreement Guidelines, and their impact on licensing and valuation
  • How to classify new, innovative technology, software and systems
  • Minimizing the risk of technical data and defense services export violations
  • Conducting M & A due diligence: Quantifying successor liability risks and remedying target violations
  • DDTC company visits: How they differ from audits, and how to prepare
  • Recent trends in consent agreements, litigation and penalty amounts
  • Foreign nationals: Ensuring ITAR compliance, and working with HR to reconcile conflicts with anti-discrimination and privacy laws
  • Implementing IT & physical controls to enhance ITAR compliance
  • Voluntary disclosures: Structuring an investigation, drafting a complete report and the impact on mitigation
  • What to expect from a DDTC-mandated independent audit in the context of voluntary and directed disclosures
