Firms and individuals in the United States conducting business internationally must comply with federal regulations governing the export of both commercial and defense-related items and services, including software, information, and technology. This course provides awareness-level training about this regulatory environment and how to fulfill its requirements. It focuses on US law, including the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and the economic and trade sanctions implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). It also explains how these regulations define key terminology such as 'exports,' 'deemed exports,' and 'foreign persons.'
