Course Materials

This CLE course will provide counsel with an update on export controls reform and explain the shift for many products from International Traffic in Arms Regulations to Export Administration Regulations. The panel will discuss the impact on commodity jurisdiction, licensing and enforcement, and best practices for the transition.


In April 2013, the U.S. Departments of State and Commerce issued long-awaited final rules, launching massive reform to US export controls. The overhaul will impact companies in the commercial sector, including aerospace and electronics, as well as the defense industry.

Under this restructuring, counsel to many companies must prepare clients to transition from operating under ITAR to operating under EAR and understand changes in process to determine which regs apply to specific product exports.

As counsel lays the groundwork for clients' implementation, they must understand the impact on licensing, compliance and enforcement. Counsel must employ best practices to update compliance programs, prepare for new risks, and refine processes and procedures for the transition and beyond.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses export controls reform and the new rules. The panel will discuss commodity jurisdiction and transitioning to a new jurisdiction, licensing, and enforcement. The panel will offer best practices for transitioning to a new system and ensuring compliance in light of the recent developments.
