Building an Export Compliance Program


March 14, 2012

The mandatory checks and balances for export compliance are fairly standard, and most global US corporations are aware of them. However, only 62% of exporters surveyed in an October 2009 study by Amber Road actually have a full export compliance program (ECP) in place.

This leaves many organizations vulnerable and at risk of noncompliance. Penalties and fines have been on the rise since 2006 with the implementation of the USA PATRIOT Act and the International Emergency Economic Powers Act in 2007. All organizations, large and small, are susceptible to committing infractions when not exercising due diligence.

Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have particular difficulty exercising compliance because of resource constraints. The lack of full-time compliance teams, coupled with the complexity of regulations across global markets, can make compliance difficult for these smaller organizations.
