S Massie Consulting LLC provides export consulting, compliance programs, education, and training for companies to navigate the complicated laws and regulations for US exports. 

Export compliance is a topic that, if not properly addressed, could create major challenges for your company. Penalties for violating US export law can include up to $1m in fines and 20 years imprisonment per violation, loss of export privileges, and more. 

The purpose of an Export Compliance Program (ECP) is to create a set of written policies and procedures that help your company operate its export activities in accordance with US Government regulations. Investing in an ECP that is well integrated into your current business processes can lend predictability, consistency, and security to your export transactions and serves as a training program for employees. 

Key items for a compliance program:

  • Documented product jurisdiction and classification determinations
  • Written policies and step-by-step procedures for export operations and personnel
  • Training for all employees on export compliance 
  • Checks and safeguards, including screening of parties and activities, throughout all export processes
  • Continuous monitoring and audit systems to ensure compliance and detect violations 
  • Detailed recordkeeping practices

Additionally for manufacturers, being compliant with ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) means you can fulfill contracts for articles that fall under ITAR classifications. 

Creating your own ECP can take well over 200 hours. S Massie Consulting can relieve this burden from your company and staff by developing a customized program for you, specific to your needs with training and guidance for your company throughout the entire process!
