Export Regulation

We regularly counsel shippers with regard to:

  • Export Administration Regulations (the “EAR”) and its license requirements.
  • The Office of Foreign Asset Control and its Denied Persons List, as well as other related lists.
  • Ensuring that export practices are in compliance with the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations.
  • Advising on whether a given Commodity requires export licensing in any setting.
  • Determining whether the country or entity to which the article is going is “controlled” or “denied” according to any State Department or other agency lists.
  • Determining whether they have protected their intellectual property rights (trademark, copyright, service mark, patent, counterfeit control) in the country to which they are exporting.
  • Anticipating problems in exporting due to new controls as a result of terrorism concerns.
  • Ensuring all necessary ITAR permits are obtained prior to export.
