- EAR end-use and end-user restrictions: How BIS applies its “Know Your Customer Guidance and Red Flags” guidance

With the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) imposing administrative monetary penalties reaching $120,000 per violation, and criminal penalties reaching $1,000,000 and 20 years’ imprisonment per violation, export compliance practices should adhere strictly to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). In addition to BIS enforcement, the U.S. Department of Justice is also devoting significant resources to prosecuting companies and individuals for EAR violations. This ACI EAR Boot Camp provided a close look at the regulations, compliance and implications of the ongoing export control reform.
