A number of executive branch agencies have responsibilities for regulating exports from the United States. The Department of Commerce has by far, the broadest responsibilities over the widest range of goods and technologies and while almost all of these items have commercial applications, many can also present foreign policy or national security concerns. It is the responsibility of BIS to implement and enforce export controls those goods under their jurisdiction using the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
This seminar is designed for any U.S. manufacturer or business currently exporting, planning to export or selling to other companies exporting your products overseas. Any item that is sent from the U.S. to a foreign destination is classified as export. "Items" include commodities, software or technology such as clothing, building materials, circuit boards, automotive parts, blueprints, design plans, retail software packages and technical information, etc.
Although the items that BIS regulates are often referred to as “dual-use” because they may have both commercial and military use or can be used in the proliferation of weapons, applications, many purely commercial items without an obvious military use are also subject to the EAR.
Even if you have attended previous workshops or training seminars, we strongly recommend you consider attendance because of the many recent changes in the export regulations which have occurred as a result of export control reform.
