Alfredo Fernandez will present this webinar program as part of a series titled, International Trade Compliance Webinar Training Program, presented by the U.S. Commercial Service.  This webinar series consists of thirteen one hour to 90 minute webinars starting in early April running through late May 2015.

This presentation in the series will address:

The U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) administers the ITAR, which implement the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and regulate international defense trade involving the United States. The ITAR regulate temporary and permanent exports from the United States, temporary imports into the United States, and the retransfer from an authorized end user, of “defense articles” and technical data identified on the U.S. Munitions List (USML). The ITAR also regulate the provision of “defense services” as well as certain defense brokering activities whether conducted by U.S. or non-U.S. persons. DDTC views the privilege to engage in defense trade as one which must be exercised with extraordinary integrity, transparency, and competency.  The trend over the last few years has been increased investigation and enforcement of ITAR-related violations, sending a clear message to businesses engaged in international trade of the necessity of complying with U.S. export control laws and regulations.
