EAR, ITAR, OFAC, and NRC Jurisdiction Determination

Our firm has extensive experience with assisting clients in all aspects of U.S. international export compliance. In addition to commercial exports that falls within the jurisdiction of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), we can assist clients with their issues relating to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, (ITAR), the Office of Foreign Asset Controls (OFAC), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Department of Energy. Our attorneys, compliance directors, and legal assistants have been working with the ITAR and EAR regulations for nearly 40 years.

We have assisted clients in making jurisdictional determinations, putting in place technology control plans (TCPs), commodity jurisdictions (CJs), voluntary disclosures, export control processes and procedures, export licensing, information technology integration, classification, ITAR exemption compliance, Manufacturing License and Technical Assistance Agreements (MLA/TAA), deemed export plans, all aspects of screening including license, end user, and end use, compliance reviews, and so on.

We have developed a comprehensive questionnaire that will highlight areas of strengths and weaknesses in a client's compliance program. This questionnaire can also be used to track progress over a period of time. We work with our clients to not only assist them in greatly improving their compliance performance but also in helping them accomplish it more effectively and efficiently.
