Coping with US Export Controls 2007
2500 Calvert Street, NW
Why You Should Attend
"Get inside" export controls by listening to the most current developments and trends in the law from top-level government officials at the Department of Commerce, Department of Treasury, State Department and Capitol Hill, experienced company managers and lawyers. In today's complex business and regulatory environment, export controls and trade sanctions continue to reach beyond conventional exports to include re-exports and shipments of foreign products with incorporated U.S. content, transfers of software, technology and technical data, "deemed exports" to foreign nationals, funds transfers, corporate acquisitions, and facilitation. Increasingly, too, companies with global operations are being affected by other countries' export controls and antidote laws. Senior executives and their counsel, as well as logistics staff, engineers and sales personnel, must be aware of the many explicit and implicit risks and obligations stemming from export control law and policy. This program will give you a comprehensive understanding of those risks and obligations and the practical knowledge to create and administer effective compliance measures to protect against potentially costly violations.
