Best Practices: Export Controls and Regulations

February 28, 2013

The International Trade and Economic Sanctions Practice presented this  webinar on U.S. export control laws and regulations.

The webinar discussed the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations. It also focused on how U.S. and non-U.S. companies (e.g., foreign operations of U.S. multinational corporations) can ensure compliance when procuring ITAR-controlled defense articles, as well as the proper licensing of retransfers and reexports of U.S.-originating hardware.

Topics included:

  • Export jurisdiction and classification
  • Due diligence regarding dual/third-country nationals
  • Licensing and compliance
