Overheard @ This Week’s Export Control Risks and Regulations CLE…

“Imagine yourself sitting in your office. You get a call from a big client of your firm – and the person says to you, ‘I just got a call from BIS. CBP just detained a package, and they said that I had filled out the EEI information incorrectly and listed NLR for the parts and the ECCNs were actually 2B230.’ And you say to yourself, ‘Why didn’t I let the associate get this call?’”
