Many US laws have an extraterritorial reach outside and continue to apply outside the US.

US items may remain subject to US reexport controls when an attempt is made to reexport them from their original destination country. In this webinar, Miller Canfield presents an overview and update on key elements of US reexport controls with a focus on the following:

  • US reexport controls imposed on foreign companies for reexports of US items to Russia and China; and
  • US reexport controls imposed on foreign companies for reexports of US items to parties subject to entity-based controls.

What you will learn about application of US reexport controls:

  • Item-based controls, including Subject to the EAR, the De Minimis Rule, and the Direct Product Rule;
  • End-use controls, including the Military End Use and Military Intelligence Rules; and
  • Entity-based controls, including those set forth in the Bureau of Industry and Security (‘BIS’) Entity List, BIS Denied Persons List, and Office of Foreign Assets Control (‘OFAC’) Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (‘SDN’) List.
