“Introduction to Export Controls for Technology Start-Ups”

January 14, 2020

The first part of Ivan’s webinar provided an overview, tailored to technology start-up companies, of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), Antiboycott Regulations, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Sanctions, and guidelines for effective risk-based international trade compliance measures.

The second part of the webinar focused on recent developments of concern for technology start-ups including forthcoming export controls on emerging and foundational technologies. An additional focus was how the definitions of emerging technologies in these forthcoming export controls will also be used in defining the scope of CFIUS’ jurisdiction to review foreign investments in U.S. companies for national security implications.
