When do U.S. dual-use export controls apply outside the United States? Much more often than you might think.

This webinar will cover key aspects of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations as they apply overseas, including with regard to U.S.-origin items held abroad, non-U.S. origin items controlled under the “de minimis” and “direct product” rules, transshipment issues, and the “warehouse exception / inventory rule” in the Iran sanctions context.

This webinar is the second of a three-part series that will focus on export controls.
