ITAR For Government Contractors

Thomas McVey, partner and chair of Williams Mullen’s International Practice Group, will lead a complimentary webinar on the latest International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR) developments for government contracts executives.

The event will be Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017, at 1 p.m. Eastern time.

ITAR is an important area of regulation for government contractors, the firm says on its website. This includes firms in the defense, technical services, information technology, cyber-security, military training and DOD-funded R&D fields. These requirements often apply even if a company is not engaged in any exporting activities – often just performing activities in the U.S. can trigger ITAR obligations. The stakes are high – violations can result in criminal penalties of up to 20 years imprisonment.

The program will provide executives a clear overview of the law and an update on important recent developments.

Who Should Attend: CEOs, CFOs, COOs, in-house counsel, compliance personnel, operations directors and contracts administrators
