    Event Synopsis:
    On June 7, 2018, the International Trade Commission (ITC) amendments which changed the rules of practice and procedures for Section 337 Investigations, have taken effect. These changes are aimed to improve ITC investigations’ speed and efficiency.

    Although some of these new and revised rules are only minor updates, the severance of a complaint into multiple investigations and the “100-day program” are some of the most notable changes. ITC practitioners have to make sure that they are in-the-know to ensure compliance and to be able to formulate new strategies and avoid potential risks and pitfalls that come with the new and amended rules. They also have to be prepared and be able to cope with what’s to come in the 2019 landscape.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help ITC practitioners and Trade Compliance professionals understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of ITC’s section 337 updates and the future of section 337 investigations in the year to come. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing case strategies and ensure compliance with the Commission’s requirements.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    • Section 337 Overview
    • Trends, Developments and Updates in 2018
    • Best Practices in Developing and Implementing Case Strategies
    • Compliance Issues and How to Overcome Them
    • What’s to Come in 2019
