Export Controls Training – ITAR, EAR, and CGP

Export Compliance Webinars

Export Controls Training for U.S. and Canadian Regulations

CVG Strategy offers effective export controls training for organizations involved in the export of controlled products and services.  Our eight hour webinar covers the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administrations Regulations (EAR).  Additionally we provide training in Canadian Controlled Goods Program (CGP) regulations.

Training that is Effective and Engaging

Export compliance is a complex subject based on thousands of pages of government regulations.  Because we limit the size of our courses, we can provide training that is engaging and effective.  Our instructors ask questions, answer questions, and provide activities to maintain our students’ interest.  

We know that your export team’s time is valuable.  Tedious classes that subject people to parroting of uninspired scripts do not give students a full comprehension of a subject matter.  That is why we have developed a course that fosters learning and provides participants with  confidence.  

Export Compliance Training Requirements

Regular training is required for all employees of an organization involved in the export of controlled goods, services, or technical information.  This is true for both the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), which administers the EAR, and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) which administers the ITAR.  Both agencies consider this education a cornerstone of a viable export compliance program. 

Course Description

This one-day ITAR Training Basics live webinar provides a fundamental overview of the U.S. International Traffic in Arms (ITAR), the U.S. Export Administration Regulations.  It includes instruction and exercises on how to classify articles (product and tech data).  Additionally, it explains the key principals in the regulatory and statutory framework involved in export compliance.

For businesses that conduct primarily in the United States but also have operations in Canada, a Controlled Goods Program (CGP) module can be added to the one day course.

  • ITAR and USML (United States Munitions List)
  • EAR and CCL (Commerce Control List)

Keeping Your Compliance Program Current

Export regulations are changing rapidly in response to geopolitical developments.  These changes effect not only organizations that export defense articles and defense services enumerated under the United States Munitions List but also those that are classified as “dual use items” under the EAR.

The BIS is continually updating the CCL as new emerging technologies develop that could, if placed in the wrong hands, threaten national and global security.  Additionally the agency is greatly increased the levels and focuses of its enforcement policies.  It is now more important to ensure that your organization is well informed to prevent violations of these regulations.
