Preparing Voluntary Self-Disclosures: Requirements, Best Practices, and Pitfalls to Avoid
July 18, 2019

Location: Webinar
When: July 18, 2019

Join Olga Torres and the Export Compliance Training Institute in this informative webinar.

From time to time, companies may discover that they’ve violated export or economic sanctions and must decide whether or not to self-disclose to the U.S. government agency enforcing the violated regulation. When considering a voluntary self-disclosure (VSD), companies must take into account all facts and circumstances leading to the potential violation, as well as the advantages and disadvantages associated with self-disclosures. This decision may not be an easy one, as frequently top-level executives know very little about export compliance, and some companies may not be certain of the jurisdiction that applies to their products (e.g., whether their products are dual-use or defense).

This webinar will walk you through the basic VSD requirements as stated in the regulations and agency-issued guidance as well as best practices to maximize your chances of obtaining favorable results.
