Dates & Locations (one-day program)
In February 2010, the Bureau of Industry & Security published revised guidelines on the design and development of an Export Management & Compliance Program (EMCP). They were developed to assist exporting companies in establishing new or enhancing existing compliance practices. The guidelines outline principal components necessary for inclusion in a comprehensive program and provide information, tools, and templates to help exporting companies in the development of their own compliance program.
The concept is not a “one size fits all” approach. Companies must understand their business processes, recognize their vulnerabilities, and be conversant with their regulatory requirements under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) jurisdiction and controls even if you are not an exporter. Understanding how to fit the pieces of this puzzle together in a coherent manner is the goal of the BIS Guidelines and the Unz & Co. workshop.
Even if you have only a basic knowledge of export controls under the EAR and ITAR, this workshop will help you get to the next level and give you the information, techniques and structure to establish your own EMCP.
If you are an international trade professional, you must know how to develop, implement, and manage an export compliance program. The increasing pressure on regulatory compliance generated by issues of homeland security and foreign policy result in more intense scrutiny of an exporting company’s compliance with the export regulations. Make sure your company is prepared to meet the challenges by attending this Unz & Co. workshop.
UNDERSTAND HOW TO:
- Create a comprehensive set of export transaction rules and techniques
- Communicate these guidelines to employees, and help them to:
- Understand their export control responsibilities
- Follow established procedures for exports to safeguard against illegal transactions
- Consistently and accurately perform order processing/screening elements
- Understand and apply license exception provisions
- Recognize and communicate “red flag” indicators
- Work within the rules established for the protection of national security
HOW YOU WILL BENEFIT
- Creates compliance oriented environment and business certainty
- A procedure or compliance program that leads to compliance with Export Control Regulations
- Compliance programs extend awareness to other company activities
- A good system will help the company avoid monetary penalties (that have been substantially increased) for non-compliance
