We all know trade compliance is complex – which is why we have put together our Trade Compliance Standard™ (TCS) and made it available to the industry. TCS defines a standard set of export compliance controls that must be implemented to enable accurate and timely export control decisions. We leverage this tool to assess export compliance programs, identify gaps, define roadmaps, implement enhancements, and monitor performance. The path to a modernized export controls program begins with standardization, which is why the Trade Compliance Standard is a key product for any company looking to enhance their export control capabilities.

The TCS organizes export compliance requirements using our Temple of Compliance™ (TOC) Framework, which defines the twelve key capabilities required to maintain an export compliance program.

The Temple of Compliance™ Framework:

The TCS defines the controls required to implement, monitor, and maintain each TOC capability.

The TCS currently defines the controls necessary to comply with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (NIST 800-171).  The general approach is country and regulation agnostic, providing a framework within which export controls applicable to a company can be mapped.

Additional add-on options include a policy manual template, process map templates and procedure templates for you to continually use for enlightened compliance.

Finally, a standard that translates export regulations into defined and actionable requirements.
