"Complying With the U.S. Export Controls" 



"How to Develop an Export Management and Compliance Program"



The Houston District Export Council is pleased to co-sponsor The Bureau of Industry and Security two day seminar on April 8-9, 2014: "Complying with the U.S. Export Controls" and one day seminar on April 10, 2014: "How to Develop and Export Managment and Compliance Program"

"Complying with the U.S. Export Controls":

Dates:       Tuesday, April 8th & Wednesday, April 9th

This two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods. BIS instructors will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; when you can export or reexport without applying for a license; export clearance procedures;  and record keeping requirements. Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on" exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company's export activities. This program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR. Technical, policy, and enforcement professionals from BIS, as well as specialists from other U.S. Government agencies such as the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Bureau of Census will participate in certain programs.
