The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announces an initiative to assist small and new-to-export companies to better understand and comply with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)
Via BDP International
BIS has developed a Small Business page at www.bis.doc.gov/smallbiz to provide an introduction to the requirements of the EAR. The webpage features a new BIS training video “Export Controls: A Quick Start Guide” that provides the basic information an exporter needs to know to comply with the EAR, in a concise and entertaining manner.
The page also offers a new mechanism to contact one of our regulatory counselors by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While anyone can submit their questions to us via this form, it is a direct and easy way for small companies, individuals, and those new-to-export controls to get assistance.
Online Training Room:
Brand new training videos are now available on the BIS Online Training Room, including “Export Controls: Classifying your Item,” and tips for utilizing the BIS’s online application and classification system, SNAP-R. Additional videos will be available in the coming months. If you have an idea for a BIS training video, please send your ideas to email@example.com.
BIS updated several introductory guides available in the Export Control Basics page:
• Introduction to the Commerce Department’s Export Controls
• How to Determine an Export Control Classification Number
• Frequently Asked Questions to Export Licensing Requirements
The material on these webpages should be helpful to all those who are new to the requirements of the EAR, and for those interested in a refresher. If you have customers who might benefit from this material (or friends and relatives who still don’t know what it is that you do), feel free to forward these resources along.
As always, we value your feedback on the initiative and any suggestions you may have for future improvements. Please send feedback and inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A co-management telemedicine solution for the international medical community
PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA – Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) has launched a comprehensive platform to provide the international medical community with clinical and educational services, which provides international physicians and their patients access to U.S. academic medical options without traveling miles away.
Global Medical Connectivity (GMCT) is a web-based, co-management telemedicine solution, created to partner with physicians to manage their patient’s advanced cardiology, neuroscience and oncology needs. This enhanced and comprehensive alternative to a patient’s routine medical travel will focus on assessing, diagnosing and managing each patient in conjunction with his or her treating physician.
“We are delighted to partner with key opinion leaders and hospitals in some of our key markets to provide opportunities to co-manage patients that are not able to travel to Philadelphia. This program also supports the efforts to nurture the relationship with the in-country treating physician and our physicians. This is the future of medicine now,” said Edgar Antístenes Vesga-Arias, MPR, CMI, PIM’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.
This telemedicine solution differs in many ways from traditional medical second opinions and telemedicine services in that (1) Global Medical Connectivity (GMCT) is a co-management, physician advisory program (2) program promotes local treatment of patients (3) treating physician and patient participate live for all sessions (4) sessions are scheduled throughout the course of patient’s treatment.
