Upcoming Export Compliance Webinars - Antiboycott Issues and Exporting Humanitarian Products to Embargoed Countries
The law firm of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg is presenting the following two export compliance webinars in the coming weeks:
•Dealing with Antiboycott Issues in the Real World on April 20, 2010 - This webinar is intended to provide exporters and freight forwarders with an overview and in-depth practical understanding on how the U.S. antiboycott laws and regulations impact international transactions. The webinar will cover the types of boycott requests that are not permissible and the specific types of boycott-related language and requests that are reportable to BIS and to the Internal Revenue Service. The webinar will also discuss current trends in antiboycott activity and enforcement. The webinar will feature an interactive question and answer session during which participants can raise issues pertinent to their export compliance activities.
•Exporting Agricultural Products, Medicines and Medical Devices to Embargoed Countries: What You Need to Know on April 29, 2010 - While the U.S. maintains comprehensive embargoes on several countries, U.S. law and policy authorize the export of agricultural products, medicines and medical devices to embargoed countries, subject to certain conditions and licensing requirements. However, the requirements for exporting authorized humanitarian products to embargoed countries are complex and the requirements vary, depending on the country of destination. This 1-1/2 hour webinar on April 29, 2010 will provide practical and useful information and insights on the requirements of the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to export agricultural products, medicines and medical devices to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
Both webinars will be presented by Doug Jacobson, the leader of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg’s Export Controls Practice Group and the editor of International Trade Law News. Doug has been practicing international trade and export controls law for nearly 20 years. He regularly defends companies in antiboycott enforcement actions and has extensive experience in obtaining licenses from BIS and OFAC to export humanitarian products to embargoed countries. Doug will share his practical experience and insights with the webinar participants.
