Webinar: Lessons for Exporters from Keysight Technologies and Other DDTC ITAR Consent Agreements

09.01.2021

Brian Fleming and Christopher Stagg will present, "Lessons for Exporters from Keysight Technologies and Other DDTC ITAR Consent Agreements," on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, 1 p.m. EDT.

After a period of relative calm, there has been a noticeable recent uptick in enforcement cases involving the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) by the U.S. Department of State's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) through consent agreements. Fleming and Stagg will provide a timely discussion of recent developments in this area, including a thorough review of the most recent ITAR consent agreement involving Keysight Technologies.

The webinar will provide key trends involving consent agreements; common pitfalls that can lead to greater enforcement scrutiny and a consent agreement; notable observations regarding aggravating, mitigating, and remedial factors; and underlying compliance considerations. Compliance strategies will also be discussed, including strategic considerations that may be present when the government has already directed a company to submit a commodity jurisdiction request involving a potential misclassification or a disclosure involving potential violations.
