Export Licensing Under ITAR
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.
Because of the onerous and lengthy nature of the ITAR license approval process, ITAR exporters must possess a clear understanding of licensing procedures while providing targeted, complete information to avoid delays. This seminar will review the full range of license types and uses under ITAR covering exports, imports, temporary exports and imports, license amendments and more. The seminar will also review the different types of ITAR agreements and license exemptions. The seminar will provide guidance on specific information and documentary requirements needed for different ITAR licenses and agreements, and will also review D-Trade, the State Department’s automated licensing system. Participants will walk away with practical information and tips on effectively managing the ITAR license application process while minimizing delays and confusion.
