Back by Popular Demand: FD Associates Announces November 6 Workshop on ITAR/EAR Changes and Revisions to USML Category XI

For those persons who could not attend our September 25 workshop on changes to the ITAR and the EAR as a result of Export Control Reform (ECR), we are pleased to offer a second session on November 6.

This class is intended to provide attendees with a hands-on experience on how to determine whether their products, software or technology are subject to the ITAR or the EAR, and what the relevant ITAR USML Category or EAR ECCN (Export Control Classification Number) is. You will learn how to use the “Order of Review” and “Specially Designed” tools. The workshop will also take an in-depth look at changes to USML Category XI and new ECCN 3A611 for items no longer controlled under Category XI of the USML.

FD Associates ECR workshops are small hands-on workshops for export compliance specialists and licensing personnel. We typically hold these workshops in our offices in Tyson's Corner, Virginia. Our program includes a variety of exercises and quizzes to help bring the regulations to attendees at a practical level.

Please see brochure or contact Tracy @ info@fdassociates.net or call 703-847-5801 for more information.
