Practitioners' Guide to U.S. Trade Controls


Sponsored By: The BADC's National Security Law, Policy & Practice Committee

Export controls and trade sanctions play a critical role in U.S. national security strategy; and, perhaps more than any other component of this strategy, it relies substantially on the cooperation of the private sector. A changing regulatory landscape amid increasingly aggressive enforcement, however, complicates the compliance challenges now faced by exporters. For both exporters and their counsel, the recent Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative may be raising as many questions as it answers. Some of these questions relate to the implementation of the newly expanded Export Administration Regulations by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at the U.S. Department of Commerce, with which exporters of defense articles and services may be unfamiliar. Others may concern the future of enforcement by BIS and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls at the U.S. Department of State, which administers the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The ability of exporters and their counsel to understand and adjust to ongoing developments will have an important bearing on their ability to implement effective, sustainable compliance programs.

Please join us for a timely and interesting panel discussion.
