In the past few years, export control compliance has become an increasing business imperative of U.S. and non-U.S. companies alike. The United States has an extensive and aggressively-enforced set of export control and economic sanctions laws and regulations. These rules have several elements that are extra-territorial in application, and enforcement trends in the last few years show an increasing focus on non-U.S. companies that are charged with export control and sanctions violations. At the same time, other jurisdictions other than the United States -- including the European Union and its member states -- are focusing more regulatory and enforcement resources on restricting the export of commodities and technologies deemed to raise diversion, proliferation, and terrorism risks. Likewise, use of targeted sanctions has become more frequent. In order to manage international compliance risks, companies need be mindful of the impact of overlapping export control and sanctions regimes.
This course, featuring export control lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic, will discuss the basics of U.S. (such as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the Export Administration Regulations, and the Foreign Asset Control Regulations) and E.U. export controls. Specifically, it will address: 1) Similarities and differences in the major export control regimes; 2) The application of multiple sets of rules on military production programs; 3) The impact of European controls on military campaigns, contingency operations, and humanitarian relief efforts; 4) The status of dual-use export licensing and enforcement in Europe; 5) Human resources and data privacy considerations relating to export controls; 6) The way to manage risks of extra-territorial controls when pursuing lawful business opportunities; and 7) How the economic sanctions regimes supplement basic export control requirements.
