About this Webinar
The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) administers the Unites States’ export control policy through the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Most U.S.-sourced items and some internationally-sourced items that have both commercial and military applications (considered dual-use), as well as certain commercial or munitions items, are subject to the Export Administration Regulations. The EAR controls exports for a number of intended uses, including national security, foreign policy, short supply, missile technology, chemical and biological weapons, crime control, anti-terrorism, and others.
Exporters can ensure compliance with the EAR and manage export-related decisions and transactions by establishing an Export Compliance Program (ECP). An ECP lets exporters analyze pieces of information and individual decisions, and build them into an organized, integrated system. This webinar offers an introduction to the core elements of an ECP, information on how to get started, and provides resources to support an ECP.
