Join SIA for its inaugural Summer Virtual Back to Basics webinar. This event is now available virtually as a 5 day package or through several individual sessions over 5 days. Attendees can attend all 5 days or each day separately. You choose! These sessions will provide attendees with the important first step to exporting articles on the United States Munitions List (USML) and the Commerce Control List (CCL) and the associated defense services and technology. These webinars are ideal for newcomers (less than 5 years of experience) to exporting under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Attendees will become familiar with the various types of licenses, agreements, exemptions and exceptions and the requirements and conditions associated with each. Come join us!


You have the option of purchasing all 5 days, Mon thru Fri, or purchase any of the individual day sessions of the Virtual Summer Basics Webinar.
