In the ever changing world of trade, it can be easy to unknowingly be caught out of compliance with local or Federal trade regulations. Increasingly, the Federal government is cracking down on these cases and levying fines and penalties for businesses and individuals who are in violation of export compliance regulations. Many businesses make excuses for not being compliant. They complain about the weight of government regulations, the cost or time commitment required to be compliant, or the fact that their competitors are doing the same thing. Some believe they will be able to fly under the radar, and not be caught, or be able to claim ignorance to escape the consequences. Whatever excuse might be used, though, there is no logical reason to continue in violation of export regulations.
