Export Controls and Licensing
This export controls training course considers the complex and developing field of export licensing and controls. The expanding definitions of military and dual - use goods means that there are increasing business risks for a growing number of companies. Export controls cover the export of goods, technology transfer, including the export of technology over the internet, via email, oral disclosure or technical assistance overseas.
Transgression of export control can result in Customs Seizures, logistical problems and contractual penalties. There are minimal grounds for defence if goods or technology get into the wrong hands. Directors, individuals and employees are subject to prosecution with a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment.
The seminar examines the current export control legislation and gives valuable guidance for compliance with the latest legislation for both Military and Dual-Use items. It will also consider compliance with external controls, such as ITAR, EAR and Anti-Boycott regulations that may be imposed on those companies with US connections or shipping goods of US origin
