A “who’s who” of U.S. export controls agencies will be traveling to Portsmouth to speak at a three-day seminar on U.S. export controls from April 20-22 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel. Licensing officers from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), as well as the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), will be on hand over the three days to present up-to-date information on current export controls regulations and answer questions on companies’ export control concerns and issues.
Presented by the New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center (NHITRC) in coordination with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s BIS and U.S. Department of State’s DDTC, the first two days will consist of a “Complying With U.S. Export Controls” overview that will cover Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and how they impact exporters as well as compliance with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods. The third day will consist of a one-day seminar for companies producing or selling defense articles that will help clarify what the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) governs, what the U.S. Munitions List (USML) is, what it means to a company if a product is ITAR-classified and how to complete a license application or a Commodity Jurisdiction request (CJ).
This event will be the only one in the New England area this year with BIS and DDTC officials presenting. Don’t miss out!
