The Bureau of Industry and Security has published a series of new regulations to govern the exportation of goods from the United States, with a particular emphasis on the exportation of goods to China and to certain Chinese entities.

In this webinar we review the application of the changes to the definition of military end-user/end-use and the “direct product rule” under these revised regulations, with the goal of providing counsel and trade compliance professionals with the tools needed for compliant facilitation of trade activities.

This webinar is approved for 1.5 hours general CLE credit in Missouri and 1.25 hours general CLE credit in California and Illinois. 1.25 hours general CLE credit in Texas is pending.
