ITAR has become a major issue for government contractors. In recent years the US government has been increasing enforcement of this important area of regulation. While the ITAR is part of the US export control laws, it also applies to activities beyond exports and applies to many US companies in their domestic business activities. This is especially a problem for government contractors firms that do a lot of work in domestic contracts - while companies in the defense area are familiar with this, many firms that perform domestic contracts for US government agencies are subject to ITAR requirements.
This program is designed to provide corporate counsel, outside attorneys, Directors & Officers a clear overview of this area of the law - to help them determine if they are regulated under ITAR and if so, to learn the fundamental principles of these regulations.
