A Shipping Solutions Webinar Rebroadcast

Export compliance is too important to leave to chance. Successful export companies create written export compliance programs (ECP) to help ensure their employees know, understand and comply with governing regulations in every step of the export process.

A comprehensive ECP reduces the chance of violating export regulations. It gives you a clear plan of how to audit your company's procedures and processes yourself, so you can identify and address any potential violations before they even surface. And a well-written ECP can substantially reduce penalties if your company violates export regulations, as long as you can document that you regularly follow the written ECP procedures.

Join our speaker from the Export Management & Compliance Division at the Bureau of Industry and Security as they outline the fundamental steps of creating an effective ECP, the importance of getting company leadership to buy into the program, and where to get help in creating your formal plan. The webinar is free to all interested companies and individuals.
