U.S. Export Classification for Practitioners
U.S. Export Classification for Practitioners.
This practitioner-level training course gives learners the foundation for conducting jurisdiction and classification assessments by analyzing the critical factors to be considered – which are not always explicit in the regulations – and the methods for conducting such assessments. The factors include the differences between the philosophies of the ITAR and EAR when reviewing items, analysis of the pivotal definitions to understand when information is export controlled, guidance on the issue of ITAR contamination of non-U.S. items, and tips for reading the control lists. The course also discusses the role effective jurisdiction and classification plays in a company’s trade compliance program, including best practices for documenting the determination process.
Users will receive a Certificate of Completion from George Mason University upon successfully finishing this course.
