Program Description

If your company is involved in exporting goods and technology regulated by the International Traffic In Arms Regulations, you should know that the rules are changing. Products, particularly parts, components, accessories, attachments, production equipment for various USML categories are transitioning to control under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) in a new classification noted as the “600 series”. These rules have been in effect for companies with equipment or technology regulated in USML Categories VIII since October 15, 2013 and since January 6, 2014 for USML categories VI, VII, VIII, XIII and XX, with USML Categories IV, V, IX, X going into effect July 1, 2014. Learn what steps your companies will need to implement when dealing with items that transition from the USML to the Commerce Control List under the EAR and how the rules for exporting under 600 series controlled commodities are different than exports of other EAR regulated commodities.

In this seminar, attendees will learn about:

  • Scope of Export Control Reform
  • Order of Review for jurisdiction and classification determinations
  • “Specially designed”
  • What happens to existing licenses
  • How to determine if you need a license under the EAR
  • Key License Exceptions under the EAR
