Intro to Export Compliance Webinar
October 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Export control laws are a complex set of federal regulations designed to protect national security, prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, further foreign policy, and maintain U.S. economic competitiveness. Unfortunately, the complexity of these regulations makes them difficult for manufacturers of all sizes to understand and follow. And the risk of not following the regulations can result in potential fines, loss of export privileges and jail time.
During the 1-hour webinar you will learn:
- The basics of export compliance
- How to determine which regulations apply to your products
- Five questions that govern every export transaction
- Key components of an export management system
Benefits of Attending
Attendees will receive an Export Management System (EMS) Checklist which lists the procedures and tools included in best practice EMS programs.
