EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS.
Export control regulations exist in the United States to protect national security and to prevent our technology from falling into the wrong hands. Failure to adhere to the export controls can result in criminal prosecution resulting in fines and incarceration. Export controls do not start and end at the point of export from the United States. EVERYONE in the supply chain is responsible for complying with laws and regulations that govern export controls. EVERYONE in the supply chain is responsible for knowing that your customer and your supplier are legally authorized to have access to the export controlled item or service. In order to protect your company’s interests and your customer’s interests it is important to partner up with a supplier that understands and adheres to export control regulations.
DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH?
In today’s global economy we are an email or a phone call away from anyone anywhere in the world. When dealing with a supplier do you know who and where they are in the world? Are you sending export controlled items to someone that is not authorized and don’t even know it? Ignorance of the law is no excuse and you are still responsible for who and where you send an export controlled item. It is imperative that you know what you are working with, who you are dealing with and where they are located.
THE BARE BOARD GROUP HAS YOUR BACK WHERE ITAR AND EAR EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS ARE CONCERNED!
The Bare Board Group is the point of export for technical data used to manufacture printed circuit boards. We are legally permitted to export and build specific export controlled items in Taiwan. We work with appropriate government entities to obtain legal authorization to export controlled items as required. All of our employees are trained to recognize export control restrictions and how to handle them appropriately. If we cannot meet your needs in Taiwan then we can do so domestically here in the United States. We are the gatekeepers and we deal with the headaches directly to give you peace of mind.
WHAT ARE THE EXPORT CONTROLS WE WORK WITH?
Export controls are defined by two regulations. These are the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Items listed on the United States Munitions List are export controlled by ITAR. ITAR controlled PCBs are allowed to be manufactured outside the United States provided certain criteria is met and that legal authorization is granted by the US Department of State. Items listed on the Commerce Control List are export controlled by EAR. EAR controlled printed circuit boards are allowed to be manufactured outside the United States provided certain criteria is met and, if required, legal authorization is granted by the US Department of Commerce.
