Directorate of Defense Trade Controls CLE/CPE

Join us for this Knowledge Group Directorate of Defense Trade Controls CLE/CPE Webinar. Regulations have been proposed to harmonize key definitions between the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) in support of Export Control Reform. The ITAR proposed harmonization rule affects key definitions including export, reexport and technical data, while additionally impacting cloud storage for controlled technical data.

Additionally, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) issued a proposed regulation that would remodel the licensing exemptions under 22 CFR §126.4, revising and expanding the licensing exceptions to permit permanent exports and temporary imports made to or on behalf of an agency of the U.S. Government without the need to obtain a license.

In a two-hour Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer the audience an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates on DDTC’s proposed amendments to ITAR. The speakers will also provide the audience with the best compliance practices to avoid future legal risks and challenges.

Key topics include:

  • Export Control Reform Proposed Regulatory Harmonization
  • Certain Encrypted Transmissions will no longer be Exports
  • Expansion of License Exemption under 22 CFR §126.4
  • Scope of the Exemption
  • Identifying Permanent and Temporary Exports
  • Proposed Exemptions under §126.4(a)(2)
