Whenever possible, the Export Compliance section will offer in-person training seminars as well as access to informational materials, such as:
In furtherance of SAO's significant statutory and regulatory obligations to maintain a compliant Export Control system, SPP recommends that project personnel who have, or foresee, involvement in international collaborations, consider taking one of the many short seminars offered under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Outreach and Educational Services Division.
Information on the location, frequency, and content of seminars may be found on the BIS Seminar and Training web page. A course that we think is quite thorough, comprehensive, and informative and allows the participant to gain more insight into the processes and procedures associated with this complex topic is the "Complying with U.S. Export Controls Export Regulations" course, which is a 2-day course costing approximately $300 that is offered annually by the Department of Commerce on Long Island, NY, as well as many other locations throughout the country.
In addition to classroom training opportunities, BIS occasionally offers free "Webinar" broadcasts. Recent "Webinars" have been archived by BIS and are available to access free of charge on their website. This information supplements, but does not supplant, the SAO Export Control Policy. If you have any questions regarding the content of these "Webinars," or any other ITAR/EAR issues, please contact Natascha Finnerty, the SAO Export Compliance Officer (SAO/ECO).
