Day-Long Seminar Critical for Exporters

On Thursday, September 22 from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., the International Trade Resource Center (ITRC), in cooperation with Evolutions in Business, will offer a seminar, “Export Controls and Licensing Under the EAR” at its headquarters at 172 Pembroke Road in Concord. This full-day seminar will help participants understand the requirements under Export Administration (EAR) and Export Administration Act, how to determine whether a license is needed, procedures of obtaining a license, as well as other crucial information on navigating and complying with the EAR regulations.

In 2010, a total of approximately 2,200 New Hampshire businesses exported nearly $4 billion in 2010. With new regulations and, it’s critical that businesses that are currently exporting or that plan to do so in the near future know their obligations under these acts. Failure to obtain a license, if one is needed, for either the production or the destination of the product can result in both civil and criminal penalties—and, as an exporter, it is the responsibility of the business to determine if a license is needed.

The seminar will cover topics including: what items and activities are subject to the Export Administration regulations; the steps that need to be taken to determine export licensing requirements for a product; how to navigate the Commerce Control List (CCL); the proper classification of products; when you can export or re-export without a license; export clearance procedures, enforcement and record-keeping; new regulations and updates, and much more.
The seminar will be presented by Jeanette Reed, Vice President and CEO of Evolutions in Business, who has 20 years of experience in advising, training and counseling defense, security and commercial corporations on export and import regulations.
