Presented by Holland & Knight International Trade Partners Don Zarin and Ron Oleynik
Ever-increasing numbers of exporters find themselves subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), a complex set of export controls administered and enforced by the State Department. The ITAR affects companies that manufacture and/or export defense-related goods or services as well as companies that export commercial products specifically designed, developed, configured or modified for use in defense-related applications. Companies falling under ITAR jurisdiction must have a clear understanding of the regulations and licensing procedures while implementing a fully functional, dynamic and integrated export compliance program. This seminar will walk participants step-by-step through the different domains under the ITAR while focusing on special issues and areas of concern for exporters. Topics to be addressed include scope of the ITAR; classification of articles, technical data and defense services; commodity jurisdictional determination; license exceptions; license applications and D-Trade; foreign employees and Deemed Exports; enforcement; government contracts; export clearance; recordkeeping; and compliance program best practices.
