8:30 am - 5:00 pm


This two-day virtual program is led by the Bureau of Industry and Security ‘s professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods, and other items subject to the EAR.

We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; when you can export or reexport without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; and guidance in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of “hands-on” exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company’s export activities. This program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.

This program will be held virtually through Webex and will begin at 8:30 am and end at 5:00 pm each day.  All program materials will be shipped to you prior to the event.


The instructors are experienced export policy specialists, and enforcement personnel from BIS’s field offices.  This seminar will also include guest speakers from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control.  The instructors will be available during the seminar to answer your questions.
