AEGIS TRADE LAW LEGAL & COMPLIANCE

International Sales
Buying and selling expensive equipment internationally comes with its own set of challenges. In this course you’ll learn key topics such as:

· How international sales contracts are created using trade documents such as purchase orders;
· Important terms to include in your trade documents;
· How Incoterms® are used to clearly delineate delivery obligations between buyer and seller; and
· Basics of international payment mechanisms and finance options.
Export Controls
There are several sets of regulations that affect the export of physical things and information from the US (and even the reexport of such things after they’ve left the US). In the space industry, these regulations can be quite restrictive. Nevertheless, one can often obtain a license to export such things or find an exception to a licensing requirement in order to achieve one’s goals. In this course, you’ll learn how the following sets of regulations function:

· The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”);
· The Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”);
· The Foreign Trade Regulations (“FTR”); and
· Sanctions governed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”).
Simplified Government Contracting through SBIRs and STTRs
Small businesses can’t compete with primes for big government contracts, and primes can’t offer the government the same innovation and flexibility as small business. Luckily, there’s a program administered by the Small Business Administration which DoD participates in! Small Business Innovation Research (“SBIR”) and Small Business Technology Transfer (“STTR”) programs are a great avenue for SME tech companies to jump into the world of government contracting. In this course you’ll learn:

· How to structure your business to qualify for these programs;
· Potential paths forward for foreign companies establishing their US footprint;
· How to apply for these programs; and
· How these programs work, including how your intellectual property rights are protected.
