The Bureau of Industry and Security, in partnership with the Western Pennsylvania District Export Council and supported by Pittsburgh office of the U.S. Commercial Service, will host two days of in-depth instruction on U.S. export controls in Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania.

Day One (Essentials of Export Controls) is a comprehensive seminar on U.S. export control requirements for commercial items as well as some military items. The seminar is ideal for exporters looking to understand and comply with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations.

Day Two (Developing an Export Compliance and Management Program) will build on the knowledge from Day One and focus on the best practices to employ while complying with all necessary export controls, as well as help create a specific plan to make navigating the various controls much more simple.

Day One - Essentials of Export Controls – Wednesday March 16, 2016

The Essentials of Export Controls is a comprehensive one-day seminar ideal for exporting companies that want to understand how to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial items as well as some military items.

Instructors from the Bureau of Industry and Security will cover 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 reexport without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; and real life examples in applying this information.

Day 2 – Developing an Export Compliance and Management Program – Thursday March 17, 2016

This portion of the conference will focus on how to create or improve your company’s compliance program by focusing on different best practices and a variety of strategies. A strong compliance program can be quite valuable, as it can help promote consistency with your exports, save time and money through greater efficiency, and minimizing the risk of something going wrong. The workshops on day 2 will help you develop a system that makes it easier to meet compliance standards and give you the tools to help build a culture of compliance. Since rules and regulations change often and vary from country to country, having a set procedure for handling all your export compliance requirements will help simplify and streamline the process.

It is recommended that companies not already well familiar with export controls also attend the Essentials of Export Control seminar to build a working knowledge of export controls.
