 How To Develop an Export Management and Compliance Program (May 13th)

For the first time ever in Michigan, we are pleased to bring in the actual BIS officials from Washington DC who oversee export compliance programs. This is a follow up to and different program from last year’s successful program covering export controls.

Learn from the experts the nut and bolts of creating an effective program including the insights and details that only true insiders can provide.

Just by attending, your company is taking a step toward showing that it takes the Export Compliance Management Program seriously. This step alone might mitigate penalties should an export licensing violation occur.

What an EMCP can do:

  • Provide compliance safeguards throughout a company’s supply chain to ensure consistent export decisions and order processing, and thorough due diligence.
  • Serve as a vehicle to communicate red flag indicators that raise questions about the legitimacy of a customer or transaction.
  • Protect employees through training and awareness programs from inadvertently violating the EAR
  • Lessen the impact for non-compliance by showing that your company has made a good faith effort at a bona fide export compliance program.

There will be Q&A opportunities and opportunities at breaks for attendees to ask the government presenters specific questions concerning their specific corporation export compliance problems.

An official USDOC/BIS “Certificate of Training” will be issued upon completion of program. 

Technology Controls (May 14th)
