Key Compliance and Enforcement Risks for Multinational Contractors ITAR and FCPA
Contractors doing business outside the United States face unique legal requirements regulating the export of certain goods and technologies, and restricting certain business practices involving foreign officials. Multinational corporations operate in this high-risk environment with organizations that are sometimes characterized by decentralized management, geographically dispersed offices and personnel who may not be familiar with U.S. law. Businesses must have effective compliance procedures that prevent ITAR and FCPA violations and robust internal controls that spot violations and promptly respond to mitigate potential liability.
This program will help executives, managers and compliance personnel understand ITAR and FCPA requirements and identify best practices to prevent violations from occurring and to respond to violations when they do occur.
