Export Control / ITAR / EAR
Get smart on Export Control….. and do it now!
How does a $1,000,000 fine and 10 years in prison sound to you? Not what you had planned for your retirement? Then if you deal with the Defence Industry, even way down the supply chain, you need to read on.
Australian and US Defence Export Controls are more regulated now than they have ever been and the penalties for getting it wrong can be huge, for both the business and individuals. The regulations (and penalties) flow right down through the supply chain making it imperative for everyone to understand how to deal with Export Controlled goods or technologies.
Export Control is a complex subject, the requirements are not clear cut and people often find them confusing and somewhat convoluted. However you don’t want to be in violation of the rules and unless you have very good processes in place and a sound understand the requirements, then chances are you could be in trouble.
Goal has been conducting training and workshops on Export Control (both Australian and US regulations), International Trade in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) for last two years and are currently contracted by the Department of Industry and Science / Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) to conduct workshops on understanding and managing US Defence trade controlled technology.
The services that Goal can provide are:
Face-to-face training is available Australia wide and offers a more in depth look into Export Control. Our 1 day course covers the basics of Export Control, both Australian and US regulations and offers specific information relevant to Executive/Management teams, technicians (eg dealing with technical drawings) and operators who physically handle imported/exported goods. We also look at the requirements for an effective Export Control Management System (ECMS).
To be cost effective we recommend a minimum of 6 attendees at each course.
All the training and education in the world won’t help if you don’t have the right processes in place. A sound Export Control Management System is imperative.
- Assist you to create your ECMS
- Review your current ECMS
- Audit your ECMS and report on any compliance issues
If you have an Export Control audit coming up, Goal can do a pre-audit to assess any issues and give you time to make corrections before your audit.
Induction training – online
It is necessary to ensure that new and existing employees have an awareness of Export Control regulations and that your supply chain is compliant. However it is often impractical to take a large group of employees out of the workplace at the same time, and not cost effective to arrange face-to-face training for a small number of people. Therefore we have created an online Induction course that can be done anywhere, 24 hours a day.
The induction offers high level information on the basics of Export Control and is intended to give participants a basic understanding of the subject. It is suitable for both employees and subcontractors. The induction includes knowledge checks in the form of a quiz that each participant must pass and they will then be issued with a certificate at the end of the course.
Our generic inductions can be undertaken by anyone however we also offer to customise these inductions to include terminology or real world examples that are relevant to your business or industry.
Our online Induction is not available at the moment, but it is in the final stages and should be available next month. If you would like to discuss a customised induction, we can start working on this for you now.
