Overview of the webinar

The US government regulates the export of technical information, commodities, technology, and software considered important to the US in the interests of national security, economic competition, and foreign policy.  Recently, US Government enforcement of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) has greatly increased due to concerns with sensitive exports to China, Russia, and Iran.

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.

Therefore, exporters need a customized, integrated export compliance program in order to manage their export decisions and be compliant with the EARs.
