National Forum on ITAR Compliance (ITAR)
Venue: Watergate Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Apr 26, 2006|
ITAR jurisdiction is expanding and civil and criminal enforcement of defense trade controls has increased substantially, with the government obtaining landmark ITAR settlements, all in the multi-million dollar range. In 2005, the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls obtained 60 criminal convictions for ITAR violations, in addition to civil penalties against four companies totaling $35 million. It also increased the number of US companies contacted under the compliance visit program and conducted more than 500 pre or post-license checks of foreign entities.
Creating an adequate ITAR compliance and technology control program is complex and U.S. companies must be up to date on the latest developments and enforcement initiatives of defense trade controls. For this one of a kind National Forum on ITAR Compliance, the American Conference Institute has assembled an exceptional faculty of top business, legal and government officials. This advanced forum will provide attendees with an update on civil and criminal ITAR enforcement, state of the art licensing and compliance practices as well as practical advice on how to successfully implement ITAR controls. Hear practical corporate perspectives on how best to comply in a era of increased scrutiny, including:
