Join us for this 3 part Controlled Export Webinar Series, Where John Boscariol, Partner and head of McCarthy Tetrault’s International Trade & Investment Law Group will Address Emerging Compliance Challenges with Export and Technology Transfer Controls, Economic Sanctions: Mitigating Your Legal & Reputational Risk and Defence Trade Controls – Canada’s Controlled Goods Program and its Interaction with US ITAR   

Session 1 -Addressing Emerging Compliance Challenges with Export and Technology Transfer Controls

Any organization that transfer goods or technology across borders is subject to trade control requirements that cut across all industries and sectors of the economy – from natural resources to financial services to information technology. This session will provide an overview of the export control regime and then focus on key areas of compliance challenges, including cloud computing, data transfers, cybersecurity and encryption controls, US-origin goods and technology, R&D collaboration, and potential conflicts with US export controls and Canadian employment and human rights laws. It will also highlight important changes coming down the pipe, including Bill C-47 and the introduction of new and far-reaching brokering controls

Session 2 – Economic Sanctions: Mitigating Your Legal & Reputational Risk 

Heightened international tensions, new and expanding trade and financial sanctions programs such as Magnitsky laws, and increased enforcement has made compliance with economic sanctions a critical issue for Canadian companies doing business abroad whether with customers, vendors, R&D partners or any other counterparties. This program will provide a very practical focus on key areas of high risk and the steps you can take to mitigate your exposure to sanctions enforcement action. Topics covered include appropriate sanctions screening of counterparties and those who own or control them, enhanced due diligence, mitigating exposure with contract clauses, related dealings with your financial services provider, addressing inconsistent or conflicting obligations of different sanctions regimes, and what to do if you discover a potential sanctions violation.

  Session 3- Defence Trade Controls – Canada’s Controlled Goods Program and its Interaction with US ITAR

Companies involved in the defence, military, aerospace and related sectors are subject to the stringent requirements of Canada’s Defence Production Act and Controlled Goods Program (CGP). Although designed in part to work in tandem with the US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), this domestic security regime also applies to non-ITAR items and raises numerous compliance challenges for Canadian companies and their partners in the United States and abroad.  Led by a CGP Designated Official who also acts as legal counsel to numerous CGP-registered companies, this practical session will focus on the key requirements of the CGP and its recent changes, as well as areas of compliance challenge and risk exposure, including:

* how CGP interacts with US ITAR and continuing inconsistencies and conflicts, including with human rights and employment law

* mandatory disclosure of actual or potential breaches on a timely basis

* challenges with employee security screening and ongoing monitoring

* related dealings with the Controlled Goods Directorate and other arms of government, including the RCMP, CBSA and the Export Controls Division of Global Affairs Canada
