Your Questions Answered - Export Compliance Webinar Series Part 2: Product Classification & Transactional Screening

Posted by Tiffany Gourdin

Last month, Amber Road broadcasted the second part of our two-part Export Compliance Webinar Series on Product Classification and Transactional Screening. Our presenters, Steve Swanson, Director at Amber Road, and Steve Keighley, Solutions Consultant at Amber Road, led an engaging discussion on product classification and transactional screening. Attendees learned how their company could maintain their own Product Classification database, and received a demo on how our Export On-Demand platform can greatly simplify the ordeal while simultaneously screening transactions. We received numerous questions throughout the presentation, but unfortunately could not address them all. Luckily, we have compiled Steve Keighley’s answers into a Q&A document – here is a preview:

Posted by Mandy Hyde

All trade compliance professionals know they must keep classifications for products in every country in which they operate - for both export and import purposes.

Posted by Mandy Hyde

Is your company still manually screening each of the parties within your supply chain looking for denied or restricted parties? For those of you leveraging software to handle this function, how confident are you that your restricted party screening software is being updated as often as each list is? Would your confidence that your software is searching each list be higher, or lower? Restricted and denied party lists around the world are updated on a daily basis, so if you're not using a global and digital screening solution - you could already be in danger of extreme export violations.

Export Controls on Spacecraft and Satellites to Undergo Changes

Posted by LizAnn Nealing

The U.S. Government has announced significant alterations to the export control guidelines for equipment, parts, components, software, related technology and services used in spacecraft and satellites. These adjustments come as a direct result of a change in jurisdiction from the Department of State’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to the Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

The long-term goal of this shift is to reduce export compliance obligations, but the burden will fall on manufacturers and exporters up-front since they will be the ones re-evaluating the product classifications. Most of the changes will be implemented on November 10th of this year, but some will take place as early as June 27th. Although the long-term results will reduce U.S. government export controls with these kinds of goods, the short-term implications will include some significant constraints.
