DIY Encryption Classification 2017 Edition (Webinar)

Nov 2, 2017
1:00-2:30pm (EST)
This webinar's focus will be on creating your own encryption questionnaires to use to classify your products. In August, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) significantly changed the Information Security section of the Commerce Control List (Category 5 Part II) as a result of the 2016 Wassenaar Arrangement decision to rewrite certain Export Commodity Control Numbers ("ECCNs") (Federal Register). It will also include an overview of encryption ECCNs, classification and documentation requirements, tips for working with engineers, step-by-step instruction of a sample classification template, how-to create a customized template for your organization and case studies: mass-market items, 740.17 (B)(1), (B)(2) and (B)(3) products, OAM and products using encryption that are not for "information security". Participants will receive an encryption classification questionnaire reflecting all 2017 changes from the instructor, Felice Laird, and will be guided through the template and coached on how to customize it for companies in different industries. We will work through case studies involving products classified as EAR99, 5x992 and 5x002. This webinar is designed for people who have a good working knowledge of the encryption regulations or have attended previous ECTI encryption webinars.

Fundamental Research Exclusion: Your Guide to Properly Applying It (Webinar)

Nov 9, 2017
1:00-2:30pm (EST)
How well do you understand the Fundamental Research Exclusion? This webinar will take an in-depth look at the Fundamental Research Exclusion and how it can often be misunderstood, resulting in unforeseen gaps in export controls compliance programs, which can then lead to inadvertent export violations. We'll discuss its formal definition and the framework around it within the Department of Commerce's Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the Department of State's International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). We'll walk through "how-to" tips for educating faculty and handling contract clauses to ensure that the fundamental research exclusion is preserved whenever possible. Also covered in this webinar: basics behind the EAR and ITAR, Exclusions vs. Exceptions vs. Exemptions, EAR and ITAR regulatory sections that matter, related government rulings, how to educate faculty on the FRE and the impact on contracts, as well as on stakeholders.
