ECIA Webinar: Preventing Shipments to Russia and Other Bad Actors
Please join ECIA at 1:30pm EDT May 25th for a webinar with Matt Axelrod, Assistant Secretary for Export Enforcement with the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). This is a “Can’t Miss” event as Mr. Axelrod will be sharing the latest intelligence on tactics used by Russia to subvert US export controls on electronic components to support their missile and UAV programs in support of their unprovoked and unlawful invasion of Ukraine.
BIS has identified U.S.-origin or branded electronics recovered from the Ukrainian battlefield that Russia is reliant upon. BIS is working collectively with partners across the globe like ECIA to highlight these HS-9 codes to industry and ask that exporters place extra scrutiny on their customers to prevent diversion through third countries to Russia. BIS will highlight specific red flags for ECIA companies to look for potential diversion activity.
As this webinar addresses many job roles with member companies that are not in regular contact with ECIA, we ask that you forward this invitation to all relevant export compliance, operations, and sales support employees within your organizations so they can attend to learn, act to help protect U.S. national security, and blunt Russia’s efforts to conquer Ukraine. We also encourage as many employees as possible to sign up and create a profile to enable further communication on this important topic.
