Overview

Join WTC Harrisburg for a full day virtual ITAR program that includes a morning and afternoon session, with a break for lunch.

This seminar will provide participants with a solid understanding of Export Compliance under ITAR and the EAR, with a focus on Export Control Reform. Attendees will learn how properly classify their exports and how to obtain the necessary licensing or permission to export. It will further provide each attendee with an understanding of their responsibilities in supporting their companies’ compliance program.

Export controls and compliance with the regulations has long been a complex issue for exporters.  Determining agency jurisdiction and classification under the appropriate regulations is difficult and requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulations. The classification and compliance process has only become more complex under Export Control Reform as well as various new regulations and interpretations. Noncompliance can be costly and even lead to loss of export privileges.
