The unprecedented spread of COVID-19 has caused disruption in our lives, businesses, and communities. The Oklahoma Department of Commerce remains committed to providing you with resources to combat this disruption. To that end, we are offering a new virtual series on the Legal Essentials to Exporting, funded in part by the State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) grant.

Many businesses overlook or minimize the legal considerations that must be addressed for exporting. While exporting is a great opportunity for businesses to expand their customers, it does come with necessary and often strict regulations, procedures and practices relevant to the company’s products or services. The goal of this new training is to help businesses identify legal and compliance issues that are relevant as businesses pursue export opportunities.

In this event we will cover:

  • U.S. Export Control Regulations (ITAR, OFAC, and EAR) and how they may affect doing business internationally including processes and procedures that can help ensure compliance with applicable regulations.
  • Trade embargoes, sanctions and restricted party screening
  • Enforcement – what happens when there is a violation

This webinar is the third in a three-part series covering legal considerations that must be addressed when exporting. In addition to attending the webinar, participants will receive a digital copy of the PowerPoint presentation and a Legal Essentials to Exporting Resource Guide (with hyperlinks to online resources). These programs can be completed as a series, or individually.

The State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) grant has been awarded to Oklahoma by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and is administered by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. Funding assistance is available to eligible Oklahoma businesses to support entry into foreign markets or expand international export activity.
