How Compliance Assurance can help

High Tech / Electronics2018-04-13T12:54:09+00:00

Companies engaged in the export of high tech, electronic components, and telecommunications commodities are subject to the Export Administration Regulation (EAR), Office of Foreign Assets Control Regulations (FACR), and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) regulations. While many high tech, electronics, and telecommunications commodities and systems are not specifically controlled for export, certain component parts and software including sensors, electronic components, and encryption items, are controlled. Additionally, ever-changing OFAC sanctions programs are challenging companies in determining where and with whom they may legally engage in export activities.

Our high tech, electronics, and telecommunications practice has deep regulatory experience and know-how to assist companies in determining commodity and encryption classification, proscribed & blocked parties and embargoed destination screening, license determination and preparation, and in building and maintaining effective trade compliance programs to manage the import and export of high tech, electronics components, and telecommunications products and services.
