Press release date: September 16, 2011

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, - In the realm of what you don't know can hurt you, U.S. regulations on the import and export of sensitive electronics are constantly evolving. To help PCB manufacturers ensure compliance with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR), IPC will hold a comprehensive workshop, ITAR/EAR Compliance for PCB Manufacturers - Complying with U.S. Export Controls, December 6-7, 2011, in Washington, D.C.

"The regulatory controls environment for leading-edge electronics is a moving target, which can make it difficult for many companies to keep up-to-date on the latest changes in the export of products, services and technical data sold by U.S. businesses," explains Tony Hilvers, IPC vice president of industry programs. "Just earlier this week, IPC submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Commerce's proposed revisions to EAR." He adds that even businesses that do not export are increasingly subject to export-control related requirements from both ends of the supply chain.

ITAR and EAR experts, attorneys Kerry Scarlott and Eby Pineda-Dorcena of Goulston & Storrs, will spearhead the two-day workshop. The first day will focus on ITAR, while the second will extensively examine EAR. Speakers will address changes as well as requirements that govern sales activities in foreign jurisdictions and the use of foreign workers within the United States.

Each day, one session will be devoted to pending legislation that is likely to alter each regulation. Additional sessions will help participants understand the key elements of effective compliance plans for both ITAR and EAR and review enforcement and penalties for noncompliance.

OEMs and others will tell attendees about their experiences with government officials who enforce the regulations. Case studies will provide insight into programs that have proven successful. Speakers will also explain how companies can determine which regulatory regime applies to different types of business activities.

IPC's ITAR/EAR workshop will be held in conjunction with the IPC Conference for the PCB Industry: Critical Issues for the Military Market, scheduled for December 8.
