IPC to Host Workshops on U.S. Export Controls


Reading time ( words)

U.S. export control rules have changed significantly in the last decade, and more change is expected over the next few years as policymakers tackle the treatment of emerging and foundational technologies and respond to geopolitical developments.

To help electronics manufacturers comply with U.S. export control rules and stay abreast of regulatory developments, IPC is hosting training workshops the week of April 29, 2019, in California, Illinois, and Virginia.

The all-day workshops — sponsored and hosted by IPC member-company TTM Technologies — will feature instruction by Gary Stanley, president, Global Legal Services, PC, one of the nation’s top legal experts on all matters related to export controls.

During the workshop, Stanley will cover the following topics:

  • Regulatory Framework for U.S. Export Controls
  • Fundamentals of Export Control Compliance
  • Application of Export Controls to Electronics
  • Review of Recent Reforms
  • Enforcement Trends
  • Regulatory Forecast

In addition to Stanley’s instruction, IPC and U.S. Department of Defense Executive Agent for Printed Circuit Board and Interconnect Technology (PrCB EA) staff will also be on hand to discuss other important initiatives in progress to help address business risks within the DoD electronics supply chain. One program being highlighted will be the IPC-1791, Trusted Electronic Designer, Manufacturer and Assembler Requirements (trusted supplier standard) and related qualified manufacturers list (QML) initiative, which promises to become an increasingly important qualifier in defense acquisition and verified export control compliance. A PrCB EA representative will also debrief the group on a supply chain risk management tool in development, which is intended to help the DoD identify and mitigate supply chain risks associated with the purchase of PrCBs.

“The U.S. Government has been clear and emphatic: Ignorance is no excuse for violation of U.S. export control rules,” said Chris Mitchell, IPC vice president of global government relations. “IPC urges any U.S. Defense contractors and manufacturers that work on electronics covered by ITAR and EAR to join us the week of April 29 to ensure your company is safeguarding U.S. national security and protecting itself from the financial and reputational harm that comes from even unintended export control violations,” Mitchell added.
