Export Penalties are hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars yearly - Learn Why and How to Stay Compliant. Each year, over a hundred million dollars are assessed in penalties against companies for OFAC (Treasury), ITAR (State/DDTC), and EAR (Commerce/BIS) export violations, not to mention detentions, seizures, denials, debarments, and jail sentences. A significant portion of these outcomes could have been avoided had companies been more vigilant about complying with US export controls. Simply put, compliance is critical, and non-compliance is costly.
