WASHINGTON, DC, January 29, 2014 – FH+H Partner Jennifer S. Huber spoke as an expert panelist at the Bar Association of the District of Columbia’s National Security Law, Policy & Practice Committee presentation on U.S. Trade Controls. Ms. Huber was joined on the panel by distinguished government and industry participants, including the Hon. Kevin Wolf, Assistant Secretary for Export Administration at the U.S. Department of Commerce. The panel discussed the critical role of U.S. export controls and trade sanctions in national security strategy, including the interplay of the public and private sectors. The panel focused on the recent Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative, and implementation of the newly-expanded Export Administration Regulations by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at the Department of Commerce. Also discussed was the future of enforcement of the new regulations by BIS and the Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance at the U.S. Department of State, which administers the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The panel noted that the ability of exporters and their counsel to understand and adjust to ECR will have an important bearing on their success.
