Stork Materials Technology will be offering a free one-hour online seminar on U.S. export controls, specifically International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR), on Thursday, July 15 at 2:00 p.m. EST. ITAR is a set of United States government regulations that control export and temporary import of defense-related articles and services on United States Munitions List. EAR regulations are issued by United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS) under laws relating to control of certain exports, re-exports, and activities.
The last in this series of webinars will be scheduled in August to follow up on questions from participants in earlier webinars and to include other critical information about export law as it relates specifically to suppliers of goods and services to defense and military industries.
