Taken from the briefing Basics of Export Controls 2016 recorded December, 2016 in New York.

U.S. and multinational corporations, investors and even governments are increasingly affected by the range of U.S. laws and regulations governing international trade. The Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), the State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), and the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) each plays an important role in administering and enforcing the intricate web of restrictions governing trade in U.S. products and technologies, the trade-related activities of U.S. parties and the financial transactions that make them possible.

Understanding the potential scope and applicability of these various regulatory programs to global business operations is increasingly important in an era of heightened agency enforcement and enhanced penalties. And a thorough understanding of these various regulatory regimes is an essential foundation for developing an effective global trade compliance program.
