This practitioner-level course examines the authorisation types available for exports and imports of U.S.-regulated hardware, technical information, software, and services under both direct commercial sales and Foreign Military Sales programmes. This course also addresses permanent and temporary nature of transactions. 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 provides detailed guidance for implementing the appropriate authorisation for transactions that may involve multiple authorisation types, as well as different regulations, depending on the activity. This course also discusses which business functions may have the relevant information required to determine authorisation needs and will present information, analysis, and commentary that address issues of particular relevance to compliance practitioners operating within the UK.
