Editor’s Note: In recent months, AMN Global has greatly increased the breadth of countries that receive our bi-weekly enewsletter. With that, it becomes ever more important that we continue to talk about relevant countries, including the United States and the part it plays in relation to other countries. In that, we invite you to listen to the most recent On-Demand Seminar from GlobalBusinessProfessor.com, addressing export controls and what you need to know.
Overview of U.S. Export Controls and Economic Sanctions
Presented by Joseph Gustavus and Jeffrey Richardson, attorneys with Miller Canfield
Learn how your company is affected by U.S. export control laws by watching the On-Demand Seminar, “Overview of U.S. Export Controls and Economic Sanctions,” presented by Joseph Gustavus and Jeffrey Richardson, attorneys with Miller Canfield.
In the 38-minute seminar, produced by GlobalBusinessProfessor.com and GlobalAutoIndustry.com, the attorneys explain that U.S. export controls are based on three different sets of laws: International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). The seminar addresses questions such as:
- “Is my company a Defense Contractor that must register with ITAR?”
- “How can I find the item my company produces on the U.S. Commerce Control List (CCL)?”
- “Who must comply with OFAC regulations? What are prohibited transactions? And, are there exceptions to the transactions?”
- “Where can I find details about embargoes?”
- “What are export control violation penalties?”
The seminar outlines the basic elements of an Export Control Compliance Program, which includes those internal controls and procedures within a company that would address U.S. export control laws and protect companies through compliance.
Gustavus and Richardson head the Export Controls Practice Group at Miller Canfield, a law firm with decades of experience in international business and trade law.
