Is your small business ready to dip its toe into international waters by exporting its product or service? Then you’ll need to have a written export-management compliance program (EMCP) that ensures your company meets all U.S. regulatory requirements to export to a specific foreign market.

The Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) and Allocca Enterprises, a leading provider of international trade education, will be presenting a seminar on developing an EMCP for your business from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 6 at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, North Carolina Research Campus, in Kannapolis. Seminar participation is free to businesses that qualify for funding administered by the EDPNC.

An EMCP is an all-encompassing customized, written system that guides your company in complying with all U.S. export regulations. It provides checks at each step of order-processing, so that the right questions are asked at the right time.

Learn about the following export-related topics and more in this seminar:

  • Implementing responsible personnel/record keeping
  • Creating an order-processing chart showing the flow of orders in your company
  • Identifying vulnerable areas where internal controls should be implemented

Small businesses of 500 or fewer employees that have been operating for at least one year are eligible for free seats at this valuable export-education workshop.
