The Export Practitioner
This monthly magazine is the only publication devoted exclusively to providing news and analysis of the export licensing requirements and law enforcement activities of the Commerce, State and Treasury departments. Its exclusive and advance reports are aimed at helping you speed your products through the government export licensing maze to customers abroad and avoid costly legal troubles.
Each issue will provide you with the latest news on enforcement of the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, U.S. trade sanctions, Census export reporting rules, including AES compliance, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. You will also find detailed and expert articles on regulatory and policy changes at the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Justice Department.
The Export Practitioner is read by hundreds of export managers, international trade lawyers, and trade consultants with some of the largest exporters in the world and some of the smallest. Just as they do, you will find information in each issue that you can apply directly to coping with U.S. export controls and trade sanctions.
The Export Practitioner also includes special guest articles and columns written by experts in the field, including exclusive regular columns on Exporting from Europe by David Hayes.
