Complying with U.S. Export Controls

This two-day program is led by BIS's professional counseling staff and provides an in-depth examination of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The program will cover the information exporters need to know to comply with U.S. export control requirements on commercial goods. We will focus on what items and activities are subject to the EAR; steps to take to determine the export licensing requirements for your item; how to determine your export control classification number (ECCN); when you can export or reexport without applying for a license; export clearance procedures and record keeping requirements; Export Management Compliance Program (EMCP) concepts; and real life examples in applying this information. Presenters will conduct a number of "hands-on" exercises that will prepare you to apply the regulations to your own company's export activities. This one-of-a-kind program is well suited for those who need a comprehensive understanding of their obligations under the EAR.

Section 232 Investigation on the

Effect of Imports of Titanium Sponge on the National Security

BIS

 

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation (OTE), is conducting a survey of the U.S. titanium sponge industry. The resulting data will be used to support an ongoing titanium sponge import investigation under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, as amended. The investigation was initiated by the U.S. Department of Commerce, based on a petition filed by a U.S. titanium sponge company.

The principal goal of this survey is to assist BIS in determining whether titanium sponge is being imported into the United States in such quantities or under such circumstances as to threaten to impair the national security. The survey will also assist in determining the overall health and competitiveness of the titanium sponge industry in the United States. Information collected will include organization profile, mergers & acquisitions, facility information, production & inventory, financial information, capital expenditures, research & development, imports & exports, customers, suppliers & contracts, employment, competition, and demand trends. The resulting data will provide BIS detailed titanium sponge industry information that is otherwise not available and is needed to effectively conduct its investigation.

Your organization has been identified as part of the titanium sponge sector or as a select downstream consumer with one or more facilities in the United States. Your participation in this survey is vital to ensure a comprehensive dataset for the assessment. BIS has worked in successful partnership with other U.S. industry sectors and we anticipate similar cooperation from your organization on this effort.
