Inappropriate Disclosure of Technical Data

With globalization, enterprises face an ever more difficult challenge complying with export regulations, such as the US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), German BAF EAR A, UK Export Control Act (ECA), and similar export regulations. These export regulations impose fines and penalties for inappropriate disclosure or deemed export of controlled information. These regulations impact enterprises across a broad industry spectrum, including companies in Aerospace and Defense, High Tech, Industrial Machinery and Components, Chemicals, Energy, and Life Sciences.
