Why Should Attend
You should attend this webinar if you are responsible for export activities at your company or have compliance oversight to ensure that your company complies with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). You will learn that the audit is a tool to promote compliance. The audit goal is to find any weakness in your compliance program and determine the most effective improvement plan. If weaknesses are not found and corrected then they could result in an export violation. Not knowing of a violation is not an excuse because even unintentional violations will result in severe consequences. Therefore, the audit is the most proactive and cost-effective tool you have.
