This practitioner awareness course introduces learners to the six primary areas of U.S. trade compliance that they may be involved in: jurisdiction and classification, regulated activities, authorizations, authorization management, customs clearance, and trade compliance programs. The course provides an overview of these areas in relation to the relevant U.S. compliance regimes, including the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and Office of Foreign Assets Control-administered sanctions and embargoes. The training identifies key activities and definitions within the trade compliance environment to foster understanding of the learner’s role in trade compliance.
The broadest objective of this course is to enable learners to recognize trade-related situations and know how to react in each situation to remain compliant with the trade regulations. This objective is satisfied when learners can:
- Understand that trade compliance is a company-wide endeavor.
- Identify daily activities that give rise to trade compliance considerations.
- Recall the different regulatory requirements that exist for the identified activities.
- Distinguish and/or differentiate between the scope, focus, or intent of U.S. regulations.
- Recognize when to ask for assistance and/or seek guidance.
- Know that trade controls consider end use and end user, as well as country of use.
- Understand that daily activities directly impact or contribute to trade compliance.
- Recognize that specific training may be required for successful compliance with the different areas of trade compliance.
- Realize that trade compliance happens at all levels of the company and within all business functions.
