Practical Training on the International Traffic in Arms Regulations
How to Implement and Monitor an Effective ITAR Compliance Program

About

Make Sense of the ITAR, How to Comply – and Reduce the Risk of Export Violations

ITAR requirements dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military-related technologies cannot be exported or shared with non-U.S. persons unless approval from the U.S. Department of State is received or a special exemption is used.

Anything but a clear understanding of the ITAR is extremely risky, as enforcement and penalties continue to rise. An exporter that does not master the nuts and bolts of defense trade compliance can unknowingly violate strict provisions of the ITAR and incorrectly assume that their articles, technical data or services aren’t even subject to the ITAR!

In order to develop and implement an effective ITAR compliance program, you need to understand the latest regulatory changes, guidelines and enforcement actions. Moreover, you must overcome practical, real-life challenges affecting your organization’s compliance status, including how to determine ITAR jurisdiction, draft CJ requests, use license exemptions, prepare successful license applications, and control foreign nationals’ access.

For the first time in Florida, American Conference Institute’s critically acclaimed ITAR Boot Camp is an in-depth, practical course on the nuts and bolts of ITAR compliance. Our expert faculty will walk you through the ins and outs of how to comply with key requirements and exemptions. This course will allow for ample Q & A, hands-on exercises and case studies, and will provide you with valuable speaker-prepared materials that will help you in your daily work. Topics will include:

  • How to prepare successful ITAR license applications, and use license exemptions
  • The “how to’s” of interpreting and complying with license provisos
  • Nuts and bolts of building an effective ITAR compliance program
  • Defining and controlling technical data
  • Avoiding ITAR violations related to defense services
  • Complying with restrictions on foreign national employees and visitors
  • Ensuring compliance with end-users and end-use restrictions
  • Vetting and monitoring compliance by foreign third parties
  • What to do if an ITAR violation is suspected
  • Preparing effective voluntary and directed disclosures
