Export Training Event Covers Compliance Controls

Program drawing 100 from all over to Portsmouth later this month

It sold out in 2017 and it’s on its way to selling out this week – the Bureau of Industry and Security’s U.S. Export Controls Training Seminars coming to Portsmouth April 23-24 for the only Northeast training this spring.

When it was last held two years ago, people from as far away as Washington attended. This year, the two-day event covers Complying with U.S. Export Controls.

New Hampshire has had two record-setting years for exports, as Granite State businesses look overseas to new markets. Glenn Welch, president of Welch Manufacturing Technologies in Laconia, took part in the 2017 training, which, he said, helped him in continuing to find new international customers for his product, Biteharder.

“This seminar provided me with a wealth of knowledge regarding the importance of complying with U.S. export controls including licensing requirements, regulatory requirements, and all other export administration regulations,” he said. “The presenters were dynamic, entertaining and brought a high level of energy to this hands on learning experience. The information I was exposed to, and the contacts I made, have become invaluable with regards to our companies export compliance program.”

If you make a product here in New Hampshire that you sell to customers around the country, it is more than likely there is untapped potential in markets overseas. Exporting is a great way to diversify (and increase!) your bottom line and, as Welch notes, worth learning all you can about the process.
