Course Materials

This CLE course will provide international trade counsel with a deep dive into export regulations and enforcement for transfer of technology and technical data. The panel will outline steps counsel should take to minimize client and company risk and remain compliant with export regulations.


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 technologies that 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, increasing risks of unintended or unknowing 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.



  1. Enforcement landscape
  2. Key components of compliance programs
  3. Best practices for meeting regulatory requirements and mitigating risk


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What factors does the Bureau of Industry and Security consider when assessing the effectiveness of a company's export compliance program?
  • What key elements should be incorporated in an effective company export compliance program?
  • What steps should companies and counsel take if misconduct is suspected?
  • What constitutes voluntary disclosure and when should it be made?
