Complying with US Export Controls
An interactive online learning seminar
from the safety and comfort of your home or office
October 20-23, 2020
9am to 12pm PDT (UTC-7) each day

In partnership with the District Export Council of Southern California, and utilizing the power of virtual, interactive learning tools, BIS is now offering our popular Complying with U.S. Export Controls seminar as an online program. This interactive course delivers critical information for compliance with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

This seminar will be a live event: an opportunity to see and hear BIS Specialists present, have your questions answered, and participate in interactive exercises to expand your regulatory and compliance knowledge. Experienced BIS Specialists will deliver the training in four, three-hour sessions from 9am to 12pm PDT (UTC-7) daily. The information covered will include the same topics typically covered in the two day, in-person programs: Scope of the EAR, how to classify your items for export, how to apply for an export license, understanding and using license exceptions, deemed exports, de minimis and direct product rules, export clearances, export enforcement, and developing an export management and compliance program. This program will also feature a guest speaker from the Census Bureau to discuss the Automated Export System.

With the travel, budget, and time limits we all face, this program offers a timely, cost-effective, and highly accessible way to learn about the EAR and the steps to comply.

Participation Requirements:

  • Reliable and stable internet connection
  • Computer with audio to participate in the virtual seminar and digital learning exercises

This professionally designed and monitored platform will give access to all presentation
materials and include real-time question and answer sessions. If you miss one of the days,
sessions will be recorded and available for viewing to attendees. Minimum Continuing Legal Education credit (11 MCLE credits) is available for California State Bar members.
