Introduction

Since its inception in 2009, the Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative, a comprehensive policy reform effort aimed at updating the nation’s export control system, has resulted in the transfer of thousands of less sensitive military items from the State Department’s United States Munitions List (USML) to the more flexible Commerce Control List (CCL).

Commerce Under Secretary for Industry and Security Eric Hirschhorn will provide an update on final rule changes covering 12 categories on the USML and the CCL, highlighting the improvements those changes are intended to bring about and the impact of the changes to business and industry. 

This webinar is particularly important for NDIA members who until now have been subject only to the licensing jurisdiction of the USML.

Says one former (founding) member of the National Security Council Task Force on Export Control Reform….while the new regulations will provide a more favorable licensing environment for many companies, ‘those benefits are not necessarily automatic. You need to carefully examine the regulations to understand how the rules have changed.’ (Brandt Pasco, Kaye Scholer LLP)

Webinar: Export Control Reform Update presented by Eric L. Hirschhorn

Eric L. Hirschhorn
President Barack Obama appointed Eric L. Hirschhorn to be the Under Secretary of the U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) on March 29, 2010. Mr. Hirschhorn was sworn in April 2, 2010.

Mr. Hirschhorn oversees the Commerce agency that advances U.S. national security, foreign policy and economic objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and by promoting U.S. strategic technology leadership.

From 1980 to 1981, Mr. Hirschhorn was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Export Administration at the U.S. Department of Commerce and oversaw U.S. export controls for items having commercial and military applications, anti-boycott compliance, restraints on imports for national security reasons, and the department's participation in the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Earlier, while a member of President Jimmy Carter's reorganization project staff (1977-1980), he worked on reorganizing the government's international trade, public diplomacy, and foreign assistance mechanisms. Before working in the executive branch, Mr. Hirschhorn held several congressional staff positions, was in private law practice in New York City, and was a legal services lawyer.

After returning to private law practice in 1981, Mr. Hirschhorn represented foreign and domestic clients on a wide range of commercial and regulatory matters. His practice included advising and assisting clients regarding export and embargo regulations, as well as about financing and other aspects of international transactions.

Mr. Hirschhorn is the former Executive Secretary of the Industry Coalition on Technology Transfer (ICOTT), a group whose trade association and industry participants are affected by U.S. export control and embargo rules.  He is the author of The Export Control and Embargo Handbook, whose third edition was published early in 2010 by Oxford University Press, and numerous articles on export controls, embargoes and related topics. Outside the international trade area, Mr. Hirschhorn's practice included trial and appellate litigation, along with lawyers' professional responsibility matters.

He also is a member of the New York City Bar Association and the Thurgood Marshall American Inn of Court. Mr. Hirschhorn received his B.A. degree from the University of Chicago and a J.D. degree from Columbia University, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
