Parties of Concern: What You Need to Know Webinar

Parties of Concern: What You Need to Know

In this webinar, we will look at U.S. export restrictions for particular end uses and end users, with a focus on recent developments. We will include a discussion of the Entity List, recent expansions and complexities, and the Military End Users list as well. The speaker will review the policy bases for these lists, the need for due diligence to extend beyond these lists, the restrictions they impose on the listed parties, and the compliance obligations they create. In addition, this webinar will cover what to do if a company learns that it has not complied with these compliance obligations, how to conduct and manage investigations related to these violations, and navigating the process for removal from these lists. The main points of emphasis will be the increased importance of these lists in this era of global trade enforcement, identifying specific tips for compliance with these rules, and identifying common pitfalls or traps for the unwary in this area.
