Various U.S. governmental authorities have moved to mandatory compliance of all export regulations. Exporting has always been associated with intense documentation, bureaucracy, and much frustration.

With increased government scrutiny, exporters need to understand pertinent and pressing export-related issues.

Your export business will run more safely, timely, and competitively when you pay attention to detail and operates in a fashion integrating 'compliance' into all facets of the export trade.

From creating the sale, to processing the order, to collecting payment are all integral issues that need to be paid attention to, and when they are, will assure successful exporting.

Other matters that need to be paid attention to are the various export regulations, U.S. export enforcement, basic export documentation, fines and penalties, and establishing an export compliance program.

Why should you Attend: This webinar is an important step in helping exporters understand and appreciate what must be done when exporting products and services from the United States.

Ignorance of U.S. export laws, regulations and procedures is never an acceptable excuse for exporters. The fines and penalties for export violations can be severe and harsh, both civilly and personally, with prosecution, suspension or revocation of export privileges. Imprisonment is also a potential consequence of violating export laws and regulations.

Just a little research shows that the export enforcement efforts by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Bureau of Industry and Security, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Census Bureau and other U.S. federal agencies are in a very proactive mode to catch potential noncompliant individuals and corporations.

The bottom line is that there are hundreds of reasons that the exporter must pay attention to so as to avoid serious fines and penalties, the loss of export privileges, prosecution of the corporation and individuals by the U.S. Government, and the expenses associated with litigation, mitigation, and the inability to export successfully.

Do not ignore export compliance requirements or procrastinate when it comes to on dealing with them. Ignorance, delay or inaction can be very costly. You need to know what you are doing.
