Harmonized System Classifications: Learning By Doing: A Two-Part Series (Webinar)

Oct 10, 2017 - Oct 24, 2017
1:00-2:30pm (EST)
Practice Makes Perfect: Hands-On Exercises, Discussions, and Instruction. >> Part 1: October 10, 2017 >> Part 2: October 24, 2017 $295/person for both webinars/$100 each addt'l viewer from same company. The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System ("Harmonized System") is used by more than 150 countries, including the U.S., for the classification of products that are traded around the world. For importers, understanding how to classify goods under the Harmonized System is critical for determining the duty rates that apply to imported goods, free trade agreement and special trade program eligibility, applicability of antidumping or countervailing duties, and satisfying the "reasonable care" standard mandated by the Customs Modernization Act ("Mod Act"). Importers who fail to exercise reasonable care may owe additional duties to U.S. Customs and Border Protection and be subjected to penalties and additional government scrutiny. For exporters, understanding the Harmonized System is equally important as its principles drive the classification of exported goods under the Schedule B Code. Understanding how to accurately classify goods for export from the United States is vital for compliance with the Foreign Trade Regulations. Attendees will receive situational and transactional exercises to work on prior to webinars - to gain a "practice makes perfect" approach to learning how to apply the rules of classification to a variety of products in different factual scenarios.

AMSTERDAM: US Export Controls for EU, NL, and other non-US Companies Seminar Series

Oct 16, 2017 - Oct 19, 2017
09:00 AM - 5:30 PM
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Office of Foreign Assets Controls & Embargoes (OFAC) Explained - complete with the latest updates on Export Control Reform (ECR). This seminar series provides export compliance professionals with an in-depth education on export control regulations administered by the US Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury as they apply to European and other non-US companies. US Export Control Reform changes can be a real benefit to your company's business once you understand how to adapt and maximize the benefit of list shifts from USML to CCL and how to apply the new definition of "Specially Designed" in the EAR to benefit your company. Both seminars will examine the details of the recent and ongoing US Export Control Reform changes with special emphasis on how those changes impact your non-US-located companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates. Expect to leave with an in-depth understanding of what the current rules are and what you need to do to keep your company compliant. Register for ITAR (Oct.16-17, 2017), EAR/OFAC (Oct. 18-19, 2017), or both.

EAR License Exceptions: Learning By Doing: A Two-Part Series (Webinar)

Oct 17, 2017 - Oct 26, 2017
1:00-2:30pm (EST)
Practice Makes Perfect: A Two-Part Webinar that Combines Hands-On Exercises, Discussions, and Instruction. >> Part 1: October 17, 2017 1:00-2:30 PM EST >> Part 2: October 26, 2017 1:00-2:30 PM EST $295 per person/for both webinars (additional employees from the same company $100 each) Knowing when an export or reexport license is required under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) is critical to ensuring your company's compliance with U.S. export controls and quite frankly, staying out of trouble. However, knowing how and when to use an available license exception under Part 740 of the EAR can be worth its weight in gold in terms of expediting the delivery of your products to non-U.S. customers. There are currently 18 license exceptions available under the EAR that enable companies to export faster and avoid wasting time and already strained resources on needlessly applying (and waiting) for licenses.

Oct 25, 2017 - Nov 8, 2017
1:00-2:30pm (EST)
Practice Makes Perfect: A Two-Part Webinar that Combines Hands-On Exercises, Discussions, and Instruction. Part 1: October 25, 2017 1:00-2:30 PM EDT Part 2: November 8, 2017 1:00-2:30 PM EST $295 per person/for both webinars (additional employees from the same company $100 each) Getting your Export Administration Regulations (EAR) export classifications right is clearly one of the most important aspects, if not the most difficult and time consuming, of an export compliance program. Combine the increasing enforcement of export controls with the $1.4 trillion in annual US goods exports and you clearly see that finding the correct Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) is more important than ever. In this series of two webinars, we will provide the participants with classification exercises to complete prior to both webinars; attendees will derive an enhanced understanding of classifications. This "practice makes perfect" approach in learning how to correctly classify hardware (i.e. "commodities") under the EAR will give you confidence in your compliance and help to reduce the substantial risks associated with misclassification. Also included: using the new Export Control Reform Order of Review rules, knowing how to avoid the mistakes the Order of Review rules can cause you to make, Commerce Control List (CCL) product groups "A", "B", and "C", 600 series and 9X515 ECCNs, understanding EAR99 and much more!
