Registration Now Open for BIS Update Conference on Export Controls to be Held November 2-4, 2015 in Washington, DC

Registration has now opened for the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS)  annual BIS Update Conference on export controls and policy, which will be held at the Washington Hilton hotel in Washington, DC from November 2-4, 2015. 

As we have previously noted, BIS Update has taken on more importance in the export controls community since many defense articles that were once subject to the ITAR are now subject to the jurisdiction of the Export Administration Regulations administered by BIS's Munitions Control Division due to the export control reform process. 

BIS has also played a key role in the new sanctions imposed on Russia and Crimea. Changes to the US embargo on Cuba administered by BIS, as well as the future changes to the sanctions on Iran administered by OFAC, will likely be on this year's agenda. Past BIS Update conferences have included speakers from OFAC on sanctions-related matters. 

The link to the BIS registration site can be found here: (click on the red Register Now link at the bottom of the page).

The preliminary Update program agenda can be found here:

Note that the registration and payment sites are separate. Once you register you have to go to the site to make payment by credit card, ACH or PayPal. 

If you have not yet made hotel reservations your registration email confirmation will include a link to the hotel reservation site. 

Given the number of defense companies that are now subject to the EAR we recommend that you register as early as possible.
In response to several question I have received, non-U.S. citizens are certainly eligible to attend BIS Update and anyone involved in trade compliance is welcome to attend the program.

Use the search box on the right side of this page to see summaries of prior BIS Update conferences that we have prepared.
