As the world is opening up again, and air and trade shows will be rescheduled, it is important to remember if you will be exhibiting any military/defense products or licensable commercial products that those items are not forwarded/exported or taken with company employees to the trade/air show without required State Department or Commerce Department licensing authority or use of a license exemption/exception. It is also important to review any technical data/technology to be carried by the employee and/or provided to foreign parties during the trade show to ensure that export/transfer of that information does not require licensing authority.
Licenses can take up to 60 days to be issued, so proper planning is required. License exemptions and license exceptions can be used for some exports as long as the exports are within the requirements of the exception/exemption.
Should you have any questions or concerns with items you will be bringing overseas to a trade/air show please contact us to discuss.
