Trade Compliance

Most people know that an export is any transfer of material, equipment, technology, information, or services outside of the country. But did you know that an export can also occur when no physical product is transported? If information about materials, equipment, technology, data, or services is shared, even inadvertently, with a foreign person or entity, this is also considered an export.

A lot of people also don’t realize that if you take an export-controlled item with you to a foreign country – for example, in your hand luggage on a flight – this is considered an export, even if you intend to bring the item back with you on your return journey. Our training looks at what an export is, the different types of exports, and the rules and regulations that govern exports.

Our Trade Compliance training will help employees identify red flags that could indicate potential violations of export control laws and regulations, outline their responsibilities when it comes to trade compliance, and encourage them to seek advice when raising concerns and reporting breaches.

More about Trade Compliance

Export controls are designed to protect national security, foreign policy, economic interests, and human rights. They help prevent sensitive and strategic materials and technologies, as well as weapons, from falling into the wrong hands. Governments use export controls to regulate the export of sensitive equipment, software, and technology to bolster their economic, national security, and foreign policy objectives. Export controls may target countries, governments, companies, entities, financial institutions, non-profit organizations, and even individuals (such as terrorists or military leaders).

Violations of export laws and regulations can result in:

  • Significant fines and jail time for individuals
  • Significant fines for the company
  • Seizure of goods
  • Loss of export licenses for a set period or permanently
  • Mandatory and comprehensive government audits
  • Reputational harm to the company

Our Trade Compliance training looks at the different classifications of exports and examines the rules and regulations governing exports. It will help employees identify red flags when they are conducting business that involves an export and outline their responsibilities when it comes to export controls.
