International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) Compliance: Best Trends and Practices
Every day, employees share sensitive information with other individuals and companies. However, the inadvertent or unintended divulging of technical data to the wrong person can result in serious consequences for the employee and employer.
The U.S. government’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) controls the exportation and importation of defense materiel, services, and technical data. Under these regulations, all technical data must be secure and accessible only to U.S. ‘persons’, absent U.S. government authorization to share the technical data with non-U.S. persons. Companies and individuals face a number of risks from failing to comply with ITAR including fines and imprisonment, denial of export rights, hiring a special compliance officer, being audited, and other conditions.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will provide an overview of export control laws and the challenges of ITAR compliance. Speakers also will offer best practices for compliance with export control laws, valuable insights on how to avoid possible violations, and advice to ensure compliance with the export control laws.
