Changes in Export Rules Relevant to Aerospace Cos.

July 25, 2014

Scott Cowperthwait and Alfredo Fernandez, members of the firm’s International Trade Compliance and Enforcement group, have been published in a recent issue of WorldECR, a leading journal reporting on developments in global export controls and sanctions.

Their article, “Space Industry: Changes to the USML and CCL,” addresses important updates to the regulations governing the exports of spacecraft and satellites. The jurisdictional changes are the latest in a string of significant U.S. export control modifications under the Obama Administration’s Export Control Reform initiative and may significantly impact the way in which aerospace companies conduct international business.

Scott Cowperthwait represents and advises businesses on a wide range of U.S. and international trade compliance and enforcement matters, including export control laws and regulations involving the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), as well as economic sanctions, trade embargoes and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) matters.

Alfredo Fernandez works with clients on compliance and enforcement matters involving ITAR, EAR, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and other related U.S. laws and policies affecting international trade and business. Prior to joining the firm, Attorney Fernandez worked as an aerospace engineer for a leading aircraft engine manufacturer.
