The US Government regulates the export of information, commodities, technology, and software considered important to US national security, economic competition, and foreign policy. Compliance not only involves the export of goods but also restricts export to certain countries, companies, organizations, and customers. Since 9/11/2001, enforcement of EARs has increased tremendously due to concerns about terrorism. Exporters need a customized compliance program to manage their export decisions and to be compliant with the EARs. Penalties for violation of EARs are severe, including fines that can be as high as $250,000 per civil violation and 1,000,000 for criminal violations, as well as 20 years imprisonment per violation. This Webinar will assist companies/individuals in establishing and enhancing an export compliance program and best practices in export compliance under the EARs.
