Are you an exporter unsure about the implications of the Foreign Direct Product Rule (FDPR) for your international transactions? This webinar is designed to provide you with a clear understanding of this critical regulation.

The FDPR can be a complex but crucial aspect of export compliance. It governs the export of foreign-made items that incorporate certain US-origin technology, software, or materials. A misstep in navigating the FDPR can lead to significant delays and penalties.

This webinar will equip you with the knowledge and tools to confidently navigate the FDPR.

What you’ll learn:

  • FDPR Fundamentals: We’ll break down the core principles of the FDPR, including its purpose, scope, and key requirements.
  • Identifying When the FDPR Applies: Gain clarity on how to determine if your foreign-made products are subject to the FDPR based on their US content value and technology type.
  • Licensing Considerations: We’ll explore different licensing scenarios under the FDPR and provide guidance on obtaining the necessary authorizations for compliant exports.
  • Practical Strategies and Best Practices: Learn practical strategies to ensure your export activities comply with the FDPR. We’ll discuss best practices for recordkeeping and documentation to support your compliance efforts.
  • Case Studies and Real-World Examples: Benefit from real-world case studies that highlight common challenges and successful approaches for complying with the FDPR.
