IPC’s U.S. Export Control Compliance Workshops


Reading time ( words)

Given the increased scrutiny the U.S. Government is giving to all trade issues, IPC is encouraging the industry to ensure compliance with all federal export rules, including those laid out in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The rules have changed significantly over the last decade and may change again as U.S. policymakers seek to place new controls on emerging and foundational technologies.

To help the electronics industry stay abreast of U.S. export control obligations, IPC is hosting training workshops the week of April 29, 2019, in California, Illinois, and Virginia. The all-day workshops—sponsored and hosted by TTM Technologies—will feature instruction by Gary Stanley, president, Global Legal Services, PC, one of the nation’s top export control experts.

During these workshops, Stanley will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of U.S. Export Controls
  • A Practical Roadmap to “Order of Review” and “Specially Designed”
  • Case Studies on ITAR and EAR Classification and Licensing Involving Electronic Products
  • Tips, Pitfalls, and Workarounds for Authorizing “Deemed Exports”
  • DFARS Cybersecurity Safeguard and Cyber Incident Reporting Requirements

In addition, representatives from regional offices of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will cover:

  • Potential criminal and civil penalties for EAR violations
  • Voluntary self-disclosures to BIS/OEE
  • Specific “red flags” to transactions involving PCBs/electronics that IPC- member companies should watch for
  • Office of Export Enforcement’s (OEE) role within BIS and with other export control enforcement agencies

IPC and U.S. Department of Defense Executive Agent for Printed Circuit Board and Interconnect Technology (PrCB EA) staff will also be on hand to discuss other important initiatives to help address business risks within the DoD electronics supply chain.

The U.S. Government has been clear and emphatic: Ignorance is no excuse for violation of U.S. export control rules.
