Life Sciences & Export Compliance: Avoid the Pitfalls and Take Advantage of Unique Exemptions and Policies

Please Join Us in Boston

Please join us for a discussion addressing how to avoid pitfalls when conducting research, filing patents, cross-border development and/or manufacturing, and hiring employees who are foreign nationals -- everyday transactions that can impact compliance with U.S. export controls and affect your business. This discussion will focus on some of the key laws that are the focus of government regulation outside of the FDA, and provide practical tips on best practices for ensuring companies comply with those laws.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Overview of export control and economic sanctions related laws and regulations
  • Everyday transactions and business activities that give rise to export control or sanctions issues
  • Impact of export controls on:
    • Seeking patents in the U.S. and abroad
    • Classification of cutting-edge products and technologies
    • Seeking non-U.S. co-development partners
    • Using overseas manufacturers
    • Hiring employees through your U.S. Human Resources Department
    • Structuring IT resources
    • Distributors and Resellers
  • Taking advantage of special authorizations for medicines and medical devices for lawful export to Iran
  • Recommended steps to ensure compliance with export controls and economic sanction regulations
