Join us at Harris Beach for an enlightening discussion about the current climate, rules and regulations concerning International Trade. These events at Harris Beach are always well attended by RRPC / New York Photonics members and involve plenty of lively discussion.
- 5:00pm Registration/Reception
- 6:00pm Dinner / Presentation
As the global photonics marketplace expands its reach to commercial operations of all sizes, businesses need help to successfully take advantage of growing international trade opportunities and avoid potential legal and regulatory pitfalls unique to cross-border activity. Various state and federal statutes, regulations and U.S. recognized international conventions are triggered when a domestic business conducts cross-border activity, including the disclosure of export-controlled materials to foreign nationals within domestic borders. The presentation will include a sampling of real-world situations which businesses of all sizes have encountered from the unanticipated application of federal export control laws, economic sanctions programs and international contracting principles, and which hopefully will sensitize you to the extensive reach of international trade laws as you guide your enterprises toward success. Topics will include a review of current developments affecting:
- Import/export licensing and controls
- US. Economic sanctions programs
- Government contracting
- European Union- United States Data Transfers
- General Business Practices
This event is $50 for non-RRPC members
RRPC Members use the discount code MEMBER to attend this event at no charge.
