Maryland Export Compliance Law
With global trade reaching unprecedented levels you practically have to have a law degree or Ph.D. to keep from running afoul of the increasingly complex export controls regime. The regulations now fill more than 2,000 pages. More than 2,600 items and technologies are subject to controls, just in the dual-use [non-military] area. Exporters and universities are required to check six separate lists, with thousands of entries, of potentially dangerous individuals and groups before allowing access to controlled goods and technological information. In many cases, government approval is required.
Subcontractors who never send their goods or provide their services outside the United States are often mystified to learn that they are nonetheless required to comply with United States export control laws. And they are astounded to learn that fines for violating those laws can run as high as $250,000 per violation.
