Export Controlled Technology and Technical Data Management


Course Summary

U.S. Export Controls: This practitioner-level course introduces users to the regulatory requirements for identifying when technical information is export controlled and the appropriate marking of such information. It also includes the critical factors to be considered and the role an effective technology and technical data management process has in a company’s overall compliance program. The course provides an overview of these areas in relation to the relevant U.S. compliance regimes, including the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), as well as the EU regimes.

The training provides users with the foundation for identifying the export control status of technical information by analyzing the critical factors for consideration, which are not always explicit in the regulations. These include how marking should occur for export-controlled technical information, the requirements related to the electronic storage and transmission of export-controlled technical information, analysis of pivotal definitions, and understanding the difference between proprietary and export-controlled technical information. Finally, this course discusses the way that releases or transfers of export-controlled technical information occur.

Learning Objectives

The broadest objective of this course is to enable users to recognize export-controlled technical information and ensure the correct marking is applied to prevent unauthorized access. This objective is satisfied when they can:

• Distinguish between the different marking statements that should be applied.
• Recognize when technical information needs to be updated or reassessed.
• Know when authorization may be required for the release or transfer of export-controlled technical information.

Role-Specific Objectives

• Recognize that they may be asked to assist a vendor, supplier, or other source in classifying technical information.
• Realize that they may be responsible for recognizing when a release or transfer requires authorization.
• Remember that technical information may need to be reassessed or updated based on regulatory changes.
