Export Compliance Webinar Series - Back By Popular Demand - February 19, 27 & March 6, 2015

I.E. Canada (the Canadian Association of Importers and Exporters) is offering an Export Compliance Webinar Series on February 19, 27 and March 6, 2015. Presented by McCarthy Tétrault’s John Boscariol, the webinars will cover three key topics for Canadian companies doing business abroad or those dealing with controlled technology: 

  1. export and technology transfer controls
  2. economic sanctions and blacklists
  3. defence trade controls (the Controlled Goods Program and how it works with the US ITAR)

Economic sanctions and trade controls have become more complex than ever before. The laws governing who you can do business with and what kinds of goods, services and technology you can provide are causing confusion as well as significant enforcement and reputational exposure for Canadian companies across all sectors of the economy. Heightened international tensions, including in the Middle East and Russia, new and expanding trade embargo programs, and increased enforcement have made compliance with these measures a critical issue for Canadian companies doing business abroad. This series will provide a very practical focus on key areas of high risk for Canadian exporters and the steps you can take to mitigate your exposure to enforcement action.
