Export Lunch & Learn: FCPA & Anti-Boycott Laws Webinar

Date & Time
21 July 2022 -
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Understanding US laws on everything EXPORT can be challenging.  Adhering to Export Best Practices means having a thorough understanding of US laws that apply to activities occurring outside of the US.  This includes the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) – the law prohibiting bribery and improper sales solicitation, and US antiboycott laws which prohibit US companies from complying with other countries’ boycotts that the US does not support.  If you export, you need to know both! 

Please join the Indiana District Export Council and the US Department of Commerce -Indiana Office to learn about these important export controls and ways to comply with both laws at our July 21, 2022, Export Lunch & Learn, Noon – 1pm.
