Sample Export Compliance Manual

The hardest part of creating an export compliance program is knowing where to start.

The Sample Export Compliance Manual published by originally began as a consulting project for one of the largest defense contractors in the United States. After publication, we adapted many of the industry specific procedures to fit a more general company profile and serve as a template for the export community.

Since that time, this manual has been used by hundreds of exporters, freight forwards, and compliance specialists including some of the most well-known names in the industry.

As a compliance officer, this resource was invaluable. I was able to cut and paste the sections I needed without having to re-create the wheel.

Our international exports are limited, but we know we had to have something in place for what we were doing. The manual gave us some good insight into what we needed to prepare for.

I cannot thank you enough for making this Manual available. Our company is in the Armor business and in the process of getting registered with the US State Dept. I was the office administrator and must now step up to the plate to take care of the ITAR. I must say I am green when it comes to this. This manual has been a godsend to me. A wonderful education and a perfect way to get a professional start with export compliance policy.
