U.S. companies increasingly have decided to move specific company operations to lower-cost countries, many of which are in Asia.  These operations include call centers, repair facilities, manufacturing assembly lines, and research and development centers.  Although the initial costs associated with the outsourced operations can be much lower than those incurred in the United States, unforeseen export/import compliance issues can increase costs, result in criminal and civil enforcement actions by government officials, and result in shipping delays between the US and foreign facilities.  If your company is contemplating outsourcing operations to Asian countries such as China, Korea, and Japan (or already has done so), you should attend this program to learn how to minimize any export/import compliance issues.

This program will address the following:


·General U.S. export control and reexport requirements for goods and technology exported to Asia, including EAR/ITAR requirements, deemed export rules, and sanctions.

·Customs and import issues often encountered when shipping to Asia, including shipping into foreign repair facilities, tariff classification, compliance with testing and safety standards, and the effect on U.S. dutiable value of imported goods that incorporate foreign engineering and R&D.

·Coordination with third party logistics providers such as freight forwarders and customs brokers to maximize compliance.

·Strategies and recommended compliance measures to ensure that export/import issues do not render outsourced operations a liability.
