In the 38-minute seminar, produced by GlobalBusinessProfessor.com and GlobalAutoIndustry.com, the attorneys explain that U.S. export controls are based on three different sets of laws: International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). The seminar addresses questions such as “Is my company a Defense Contractor that must register with ITAR?”, “How can I find the item my company produces on the U.S. Commerce Control List (CCL)?”, “Who must comply with OFAC regulations, what are prohibited transactions and are there exceptions to the transactions?”, “Where can I find details about embargoes?” and “What are export control violation penalties?”.

The seminar outlines the basic elements of an Export Control Compliance Program, which are those internal controls and procedures within a company that would address U.S. export control laws and protect your company through compliance. Gustavus and Richardson head up the Export Controls Practice Group at Miller Canfield, a law firm with decades of experience in international business and trade law.
