California and Washington Export Regulation Lawyers

Export laws specify the ways U.S. businesses compete against corporations with operations in other countries. The regulations enforced by the Commerce and State Departments also dictate how U.S. businesses operate overseas. Many exported products are made with components from more than one country, and they require adherence to export restrictions and international trade laws.

For example, a B-26 bomber can be exported as long as the bomb bay doors are not operational. If they can operate, the bomber becomes an implement of war and subject to munitions control laws. Cellphones must contain specific frequencies or they could be considered to have military applications.

What may seem like a small detail to a manufacturer can become a major issue that delays the exporting of a product, which results in seizures, penalties, the loss of time and money, and even forfeiture of goods.
