Export Regulations and Enforcement

1:00 PM- 3:00 PM

Have your clients experienced compliance issues when exporting? Are your companies meeting all U.S. Government export requirements? Without proper registration and licensing, companies may face enforcement actions. Do you know how to effectively counsel your companies on export compliance?

Aerospace, Hight-Tech, Research and Defense products and services are major industries that have export compliance regulations and may require export licenses. The US Department of Commerce Office of Export Enforcement works cooperatively with the exporting community to prevent violations but the enforcement agents can and do make arrests and detain and seize goods about to be illegally exported. Learn how your clients can avoid costly violations and loss of sales.
