Events

January 31, 2017 - February 1, 2017

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Thad McBride will speak at the American Conference Institute (ACI) 6th Forum on U.S. Export & Re-Export for Canadian Operations on a panel titled, "When Things Go Sideways: From Incident Report to Internal Investigation to Voluntary Disclosure."

  • Appropriately scoping the internal investigation
  • Multi-jurisdictional exposure and coordination in a global organization
  • Agency guidelines, expectation and requirements for voluntary disclosures (BIS/DDTC/OFAC and GAC/CBSA/CGD/RCMP)

The ACI 6th Forum on U.S. Export & Re-Export for Canadian Operations program will be held January 31 – February 1, 2017 in Toronto, Ontario. For more information and registration, visit the ACI website.
