Does my product need a license for export? What's considered "dual use?" Is my conversation with a prospective foreign buyer considered a "deemed export?"

Montana World Trade Center's Tech Export Team member, Justin Cook, covers the dos and don'ts of export licensing and compliance. Learn about export control policies, regulations, and compliance programs before you engage in export. And if you're already engaged, make sure your business development and management team are up to speed on the basics.

Morning training will be followed by lunch and a panel on the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, the U.S. Government's program for transferring defense articles, services, and training to international partners and organizations. Though the FMS has been around for decades, many Montana firms that could benefit from the program don't know about it. Hear from Montanans who have navigated the program successfully for years.

Key Topics: -U.S. Export Control Regulations to include International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and how they relate to Covered Defense Information (CDI). -Overview of export license determination, agreements and exemptions/exceptions. Patty Cox from the Montana Procurement and Technical Assistance Center will also be on site to advise on government contracting.
