Topic Background:

An effective Export Control Program (ECP) consists of many processes that connect, intersect and overlap. These connections create the need for strong practices and processes that do not just sit upon the self and collect dust. An ECP must be planned, clear and provide direction and guidance to those affected by the program. US companies cannot assume smooth sailing when it comes to its ECP. Does your ECP meet the regulatory standards required under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)?

A self-assessment is an opportunity to test whether internal controls have been implemented within an existing program with the purpose of eliminating common vulnerabilities found in export compliance programs. Each company has unique export activities and export programs.
