Export Compliance Q&A Support
Corporate compliance and legal departments depend on TCC’s expertise to sort complex export compliance matters. TCC is on call to assist with day-to-day export compliance questions. This includes:
- Providing regulatory analysis, transaction analysis, export classification assistance, license determination and guidance
- Helping draft or structure complex license, commodity jurisdiction or commodity classifications submissions, and
- Perspective and support on evaluating potential instances of non-compliance and voluntary disclosure.
Companies depend not only on TCC’s comprehensive regulatory expertise, but also on its broad perspective on how to apply those regulations to solve real world corporate export compliance challenges.
Export Control Policies and Procedures
TCC consultants have worked on drafting export compliance procedures for a wide array of companies, from small start-ups to some of the largest and most sophisticated global companies. Too often our consultants see companies with ballooning export compliance procedures where even seasoned operatives become lost in the complexity.
That’s why TCC has a “less is more” bias to compliance procedures that entails a shorter, more in-context approach to both simplify complex rules as much as possible and to create more workable and user-friendly procedures. And if a company has no procedures, TCC can help jumpstart the process of evaluating and addressing priorities and setting that company on an ever-improving compliance path.
TCC helps major law firms better serve their clients with niche export control know how and a practical knowledge of how to translate complex regulatory requirements into corporate processes and procedures. We help with export control investigations and voluntary self disclosure, including assisting law firms in evaluating what transactions may or may not comply.
We can help law firm clients improve compliance programs to meet enforcement settlement expectations along with other export enforcement remediation efforts clients may require. TCC also assists law firms with export compliance monitorships, risk assessments and regulatory analysis. In fact, law firms have depended on TCC consultants for litigation support on some of the most significant export enforcement cases.
TCC consultants are regular export control trainers at public and in-house seminars and conferences. We typically provide export compliance training for in-house corporate and legal export compliance administrators, or other corporate and government personnel requiring heightened compliance training. TCC consultant Scott Gearity serves as the President of the Export Compliance Training Institute and TCC consultant Maarten Sengers is an original co-founder.
TCC has a true global perspective on US export controls. Our consultants have specific expertise on assisting non-US companies with understanding the extra-territorial impact of US export controls. We assist global multinationals in managing US export control regulation requirements in their global supply chain and distribution networks.
TCC also has a general understanding of how other country export controls work. We can help non-US companies understand the US differences and help them establish processes and procedures that address both local and US requirements. In addition to all of the services described above, TCC can also help companies with US regulatory jurisdiction analysis including de minimis calculation.
