August 16, 8:00-9:30AM U.S. Export Management and Compliance Program
Updated: Aug 18
A lot of changes are happening in the export control area lately. Since April 28, 2020, the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has made at least five announcements altering export control policy. These actions will have significant implications for U.S. and non-U.S. companies that have business relationships with Huawei and many of its affiliates, identified entities on the Entity List, companies which previously relied upon the CIV license exemption, and other companies that export, re-export, and transfer items intended for military end-use or military end-users. Companies in the export business should be aware of the changes and their implications, and vigorously examine their export compliance program to ensure compliance. Please join us with a talk on the U.S. Export Management and Compliance program with our distinguished guest Dixon F. MILLER, the senior partner from Porter Wright. This event will cover the contents below and beyond:
• The difference between export and trade restrictions
• The complexity of export controls: three major categories
• Compliance measures
