ITAR Training Schedule

Export Compliance Integration into Quality Management Principles

ISO 9001:2015 quality management system (QMS) requirements include the consideration of external factors such as ITAR regulatory requirements.  Organizations that need to fulfill these requirements  need to be aware of that auditors may be asking about ITAR/export compliance and how it affects their organization.  CVG Strategy can provide implementation, training and support for clients needing an export compliance program.

“We’ve had great success in helping companies with ITAR training and export compliance consulting,” said Cindy V. Gholston, President of CVG Strategy. “With the enhanced focus on external regulations in the new ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D it’s important to incorporate export compliance as part of their QMS.”

Our Export Compliance Training Goals

Export compliance is an extremely complex subject.  While it is, without doubt, a subject of extreme importance, most training sessions available to the public are dull.  CVG Strategy encourages class participation and because we limit the size of our classes you have ample opportunity to get clarification on any questions you might have.  As a result students have a better retention of important information.

Our training provides an overview of the ITAR and EAR so that students can confidently approach the many pages of regulations they need to access in their daily functions as members of an export compliance team.

Export Compliance Education is Important

Export Compliance regulations are continually being modified to protect U.S. national security and foreign policy needs.  Failure to comply with these regulations can result in administrative and/or criminal penalties.  These penalties include fines, debarment from export activities, and even imprisonment.  Additionally, incidents that require enforcement can damage the reputation and credibility of your organization.

Enforcement agencies are increasing their efforts to prosecute organizations that violate export violations.  They are also increasing penalties and publicizing actions taken against companies found to be guilty of infractions.  This applies not only to the ITAR and EAR regulations but to denied parties and antiboycott regulations as well.

When evaluating an export compliance program, agencies will access the level and regularity of training provided to members of that organization.  Proper training allows team members to correctly perform export control classifications, identify foreign nationals, and determine which transactions require a license.  Check our ITAR Training Schedule regularly to keep your export team up to date.
