Export Control – How to Stay Compliant
This training provides an overview of U.S. export control laws and regulations, focusing on the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) administered by the U.S. Department of State and the Export Administration (EAR) administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce. This training contains practical tips for how to stay compliant with export control laws and regulations including compliance program best practices.
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Overview
This overview will discuss the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which makes it illegal for companies to influence anyone with any personal payments or rewards. The FCPA applies to any person who has a certain degree of connection to the United States and engages in foreign corrupt practices. The Act also applies to any act by U.S. businesses, foreign corporations trading securities in the United States, American nationals, citizens, and residents acting in furtherance of a foreign corrupt practice whether or not they are physically present in the United States. This is considered the nationality principle of the act. Whenever businesses decide to follow the unethical road, there are consequences including high financial penalties. Any individuals that are involved in those activities may face prison time. This act was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. In the case of foreign natural and legal persons, the Act covers their actions if they are in the United States at the time of the corrupt conduct. This is considered the protective principle of the act. Further, the Act governs not only payments to foreign officials, candidates, and parties, but any other recipient if part of the bribe is ultimately attributable to a foreign official, candidate, or party. These payments are not restricted to just monetary forms and may include anything of value.
