11th – 12th February 2020 – European Trade Controls Compliance Strategic Summit

The Annual 2-Day Summit on European, EU and EU Member State Import and Export Trade Controls: The Strategy and Policy Perspective.
We all understand the extra territoriality of US Defence Controls but are you fully up to date on what is taking place ‘across the pond’?

In Europe, sanctions and export controls are forcing themselves onto the corporate compliance agenda as never before. Trade war is discussed openly and earnestly for the first time and as always, the pressure means you as the compliance executive must find solutions. The need for keeping up to date has never been so important. By working closely with our US and EU trade compliance clients we understand the issues you are working with and have produced a program which over two days will give you a clearer understanding of the European export Regulations, open lines of communication with EU and EU Member State Regulators and shed light on the solutions available.

As a senior executive it is your role to ensure compliance but beating a path through the smoke can take time and limited resources, so where do you go for balanced, authoritative advice?

Every year in Washington D.C in February Nielsonsmith will be bringing a select group of EU Member State and EU Commission Regulators together, along with specialist corporate executives to discuss and understand how best to work with the regulation. In depth, one-hour, interactive presentations allow you to ask the questions you need unbiased answers to.

Nielsonsmith is a boutique trade compliance conference company here for the long term, we understand corporate budgets for compliance training are limited so price our events with this in mind, please drop us a line to learn more.
