An international trade consultant is more than just someone who can read and understand government regulations. They’re an integral part of your supply chain and a valuable “go-to” resource for all of your compliance questions and issues.

Who Needs Our Consultancy Services?

It may seem obvious, but if your company is involved in exporting or importing goods, services, or data to or from another country, you likely fall under ITAR or EAR. No matter your company’s size or the industries you serve, your business is required to comply with various trade laws.

Since ITAR and EAR can be vague or confusing regulations, it’s critical to understand their impact and develop and maintain a compliance program to ensure you abide by these rules. 

Here are some signs that you probably need a trade compliance consultant:

  • You’ve never heard of ITAR or EAR and don’t know if they apply to your business.
  • You’ve received “friendly” phone calls from government agents at State, Commerce, Treasury, ICE, or Census.
  • You (wrongly) believe that your freight forwarder takes care of all import/export compliance for you.
  • Your shipment has been seized by Customs and won’t be released.
  • The one person at your company who handles trade compliance just quit.
  • You know you’re doing some things right, but also know you could do better.

Export Solutions’ trade compliance services are designed to assist your company if it does not have the resources to hire in-house trade consultants.

  • The U.S. Department of Commerce: Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). This agency is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
  • The U.S. Department of the Treasury: Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This agency is responsible for administering and enforcing a variety of economic and trade sanctions against certain countries and individuals.
