Global Connection - October 2013
Dear Friend of Snell & Wilmer,
We have written over the years about export control laws and other regulatory controls related to international trade. We have also discussed the comparative advantages that some countries have over others, including the United States, in relation to the implementation and enforcement of the international trade laws. In response to these concerns, we have previously reported on the United States’ efforts pursuant to the National Export Initiative to work towards revising United States export control laws. On October 15, 2013, the Departments of Commerce and State will rollout the Export Control Reform, which will significantly impact the export of goods, technology and services around the world. In addition, there are significant events occurring at the International Trade Court of which any business operating globally should be aware.
