Clients are often aware of the importance of export compliance but don’t know where to start. The volume of regulations and data can be overwhelming. Reviewing the Bureau of Industry and Security website is a good first step. BIS offers online free of charge training about basic export regulations. Once you have a clearer understanding of terminology and processes you can decide your next steps toward compliance. Your goals should be to reduce risk to fines and penalties and develop an Export Compliance Program.
Here is some info from the BIS website. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help.
“Export 101” training videos are available to help exporters understand the rules governing the export process and to promote awareness by the Department of Commerce.
