Navigating The Maze Of Trade Compliance/

Post-export control reform, the U.S. has three export control regimes: International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) administered by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the EAR 600 series administered by the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).

Navigating the labyrinthine requirements of these regimes calls for highly knowledgeable legal guidance. You will find it at Klimek, Kolodney & Casale, P.C. Let our seasoned team of attorneys pilot you through the regulatory complexities related to:

  • Export license preparation under the DDTC and BIS
  • Commodity Classification Automated Tracking System (CCATS) filings
  • Commodity jurisdiction (CJ) requests
  • Interpretation of the regulations
  • Customs rulings requests
  • Voluntary disclosures
  • Audits
  • Training and compliance
  • Technical Assistance Agreement (TAA)
  • Manufacturing License Agreement (MLA)
