Crafting a Comprehensive Compliance Program to Mitigate Penalties for Inadvertent Violations

Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A


Conducted on Thursday, December 3, 2009
Recorded event now available


This CLE seminar will discuss export regulations and enforcement for transfer of technology and technical data and the steps companies and counsel should take to minimize risk and remain compliant with export regulations.

Description

The transfer of technology and technical data and the applicability of the deemed export rule pose growing compliance concerns for companies. Before selling or allowing sale of its products, a business must determine what technologies are subject to export controls to ensure full compliance.

The proliferation of email and use of the Internet increases the accessibility of data from anywhere in the world, raising new risks in regulating the transfer of technical data and information. Companies must be vigilant to prevent intentional and unintentional export control violations.

As a result, companies must establish and implement comprehensive export control compliance programs. Compliance programs can deter violations and will also factor into the government’s enforcement analysis and can mitigate penalties if a violation occurs.

Listen as our authoritative panel of international trade counsel reviews the regulations and enforcement landscape of technology transfers, examines the key components of an effective compliance program, and offers best practices for complying with the regulations to prevent export violations and mitigate risk.
