The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) control the export of dual-use goods and technologies, which have both civilian and military applications. These regulations are crucial for maintaining U.S. national security and foreign policy interests by preventing the proliferation of sensitive technologies to adversarial nations or groups. For procurement and supply chain professionals, understanding EAR is vital to ensuring compliance with export controls, avoiding hefty fines, and mitigating risks associated with unauthorized exports. Compliance with EAR supports the responsible management of international trade activities and helps maintain the integrity of national security.
