Export Control Compliance Assessments
United States export controls laws are designed to control sensitive goods and technologies, to protect and promote national security, foreign policy and economic interests. Compliance with all relevant export laws is extremely important: a company will be considered strictly liable for the violations of these laws and, as a consequence, it may incur considerable penalties, civil and criminal prosecution, fines, and loss of export privileges. Therefore, each company should regularly review its export control manuals to determine compliance with the applicable regulations, such as the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
Global Trade Expertise has extensive experience conducting export compliance assessments. We will conduct a thorough review of your current procedures and will advise you on the remedial measures relative to your current compliance status. Our assessment will also include the extraterritorial impact of the U.S. export laws on your foreign subsidiaries. As a result of our assessment, we will identify compliance issues found, best practices (including informal benchmarking against similarly situated exporters), and recommendations.
