You are the general counsel or CEO of your company. Your compliance manager comes into your office and tells you that he/she may have discovered an export violation within the company. Or perhaps you have received a directed disclosure from the State Department requesting information, an administrative subpoena from BIS, or an informed compliance letter from Customs. You are aware that export and import violations can result in significant civil and criminal penalties, so a lot is at stake. The following are a number of issues that you might present to your company in responding to this hypothetical situation under the Export Administration Regulations, International Traffic In Arms Regulations, U.S. sanctions laws and U.S. import laws. The details of your response, of course, will vary depending upon the company and violations involved. A lot will have to happen quickly so it is important for you to be prepared in advance for this situation.

Please see full Report below for more information.
