Complying with U.S. Export Controls
This two-day program, led by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods.

The program focuses on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); when you can export or re-export without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; an overview of the Export Compliance Management Program (ECMP) concepts; and real life examples in applying this information.

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 agencies such as the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Bureau of Census will participate in certain presentations.

Complying with U.S. Export Controls will take place Sept. 9 and 10th, 2008 at 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m.  The seminar will be held at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott, 2020 E. American Blvd., Bloomington, MN (exit I-494 at 24th).

Technology Controls
This full-day program will offer a comprehensive look at how to comply with U.S. export and re-export controls relating to technology, software and encryption.

BIS technical and policy specialists will also discuss important export control issues that may arise in the employment of foreign nationals and on foreign items incorporating, or produced from, controlled U.S.-origin software and technology.  The afternoon portion will include a discussion of the unique provisions related to encryption under the EAR.
