In an effort to strengthen its export control regime, China drafted a new Export Control Law which, if enacted, will align its export control system more closely to those of other countries, including the U.S. If passed, the ECL is due to take effect in 2018. While the proposed law would bring China closer to fulfilling its international obligations under the UN Security Council, many U.S. exporters have questions about how it will affect their operations and sales in the country if enacted as drafted. Some of the key points of concern include newly created re-export regulations that will place tighter controls on the re-export of goods with a certain percentage of foreign content; deemed export controls affecting non-Chinese citizens, including residents of Taiwan and Hong Kong; on-site inspections of end-users, and a strict licensing review process. Affected U.S. companies will be those with customers, manufacturing operations, subsidiaries or business travel in China. Join us for this webinar to learn about how to prepare your business for possible changes under this new landmark Export Control Law. Our speaker will be Anne H.Y. Peng, Special Counsel with Baker McKenzie (Hong Kong).
