Export Licensing – The Importance of Getting it Right

Proper determination of whether advanced approval from the U.S. Government is required prior to an export; the agency from which to obtain approval; and the specific form of license, agreement, or other form of approval required can be difficult.  Competent legal advice can answer these questions and help ensure the correctness of representations made in documents submitted in requests for approval.  For those unable to afford advice, the risks are high, but the Department of Commerce and Department of State provide useful advise on their websites.
