Multi-million dollar fines, criminal charges, lost business – all of these are the side effects of non-compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). New reforms coming out of the Obama Administration are gradually loosening those controls, beginning with non-combat related aircraft and commercial satellite related items. The Departments of State and Commerce are continuing to create and publish new rules and changes to the ITAR and Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

This webinar with export compliance attorneys from the defense industry will discuss how these reforms will affect the military electronics suppliers, including new requirements and potential pitfalls.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

• The classification in the framework of ECR

• New definition of "Specially Designed"

• What is moving to the CCL and what is not and how to know the difference

• Potential pitfalls/common mistakes to avoid
