Managing Exporter/Foreign Third Party Relationships to Minimize Liability

ACI’s 10th National Forum on Export Controls

May 15 – 16, 2007 from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm (EDT)

As the United States takes a more aggressive approach to enforcement in all areas of international trade regulation and national security, the Departments of State, Commerce, Treasury and Homeland Security are vigorously policing the export activities of U.S. firms and their foreign trading partners to ensure strict compliance with export control and economic sanctions laws.

Rising government expectations and new regulatory standards amplify risks for U.S. and foreign companies in our increasingly global business environment. Export controls are becoming ever more complex and restrictive, and U.S. exporters must develop robust internal export control compliance programs that do not unduly hamper legitimate trade and also comply with local laws.

Attendees will benefit from the practical perspective of seasoned corporate export compliance executives from companies such as General Electric, BAE Systems, General Dynamics, IBM, Tyco, Citigroup, Texas Instruments and Mitsui. Get an update on regulatory and policy initiatives from top Government officials and learn how industry is setting up internal controls to comply in this constantly changing global legal landscape. This year’s agenda will include the latest information on:

  • Screening to mitigate risks beyond export control and sanctions compliance
  • Best practices for EAR licensing to China
  • Approaches to technology transfers and deemed reexports with dual and third country nationals
  • Managing conflicts with blocking measures in EU, Canada and Mexico
  • Conducting effective internal investigations
  • Protecting your data at every stage of your outsourcing relationships
  • Dealing with red flags and actual violations in foreign third party relationships

Eric McClafferty presented Managing Exporter/Foreign Third Party Relationships to Minimize Liability Risks” on Wednesday, May 16.

Participants will also receive a comprehensive set of written materials prepared by the speakers for the conference.
