The U.S. government continues to vigorously enforce U.S. export laws against both U.S. and non-U.S. companies. In addition to monetary penalties, companies charged with violating U.S. export laws may be subject to strict compliance obligations. In extreme cases, the U.S. government may even suspend a company’s export privileges.

In this webinar, we will discuss recent export enforcement actions both under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which cover exports of commercial items, and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which cover exports of defense articles.

In particular, we will cover the following:

  • Key EAR and ITAR regulatory provisions.
  • Common mistakes made by exporters, such as inaccurate jurisdiction and classification determinations, misuse of export exceptions, etc.
  • Examples of recent export enforcement actions.
  • Compliance best practices for avoiding violations.
