UpdateSeminarU.S. Export Controls and Sanctions – Update 2020 – Day 1

Update on Defense Export Controls and related U.S. Dual-use

2020 means another year of Trump Administration. In times of trade disputes, punitive tariffs and tightened U.S. sanctions, AWA invites interested exporters to Frankfurt to present the status quo of American export controls.

The focus in the seminar will be on the current export controls for defence goods and the associated U.S. dual-use controls. Speakers (tbc) from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) will give an overview of the effects of the Trump administration‘s foreign trade policy on German and European companies.

Topics include upcoming changes in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) as well as upcoming changes to the BIS that affect the export and re-export of “600 Series“ items and other military parts and components subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

Aim of the Seminar

German and European companies trading with the USA are forced to come into contact with U.S. export control law. In the seminar, experts on U.S. law will teach you how to assess the current U.S. export control policy and what conclusions you can draw from it for your trade transactions. The focus will be on the current export controls for defence goods and the associated U.S. dual-use controls.
