The US government regulates the export of information, commodities, technology, and software considered important to the US in the interests of national security, economic competition, and foreign policy. Since the events of 9/11, US government enforcement has increased due to concerns about terrorism. Exporters need a customized, integrated export compliance program in order to manage their export decisions and to be compliant with the EARs. Penalties for violation of EAR are severe, including fines that can be as high as $250,000 per civil violation and $1,000,000 for criminal violations, as well as 20 years imprisonment per violation.
