This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel to U.S. companies for identifying critical compliance risks, including a discussion of the changing list of what is covered by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The panel will offer strategies for ensuring effective compliance with the complex statute.


Companies of all sizes that deal with anything related to the defense industry must ensure they comply with the complex requirements under ITAR. The absence of a strong understanding of the requirements can result in unknowing or inadvertent violations of ITAR.

Companies and counsel must overcome the practice challenges involved in the day-to-day operations, such as determining jurisdiction and preparing license applications, which impact a company’s compliance status.

Therefore, it is critical for companies and their counsel to stay up to date on regulatory changes and enforcement action trends and have effective compliance programs in place to reduce the risk of violations.
