Is Your Export Business Really Compliant?
Just because someone in your shipping department can pack your items for export and complete a carrier’s air waybill doesn’t mean you are compliant with U.S. export laws and regulations. And just because you are not shipping sensitive military commodities does not mean that you are not subject to export laws and regulations. The fact is that doing business internationally introduces your company to a complex world of laws, regulations and controls administered by numerous government agencies including the U.S. Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), U.S. Department of State – Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), U.S. Department of Treasury – Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Census Bureau.
Navigating through the multitude of rapidly changing regulations enforced by these agencies can be a daunting task, especially if your organization does not have the resources necessary to ensure consistent ongoing trade compliance. Further challenging businesses are recent export control reforms that are rapidly changing the rules of the game. Unfortunately, failure to comply with U.S. trade laws can result in both civil and criminal penalties, substantial fines and even imprisonment.
This hour and a half webinar will provide your company with the critical information that every exporter needs to know about U.S. Export Control Regulations.
