Due Diligence Audits
Addison-Clifton conducts pre-acquisition trade compliance due diligence audits. Oftentimes, when an acquisition is taking place, trade compliance is not a top priority on the long list of tasks that must be completed before closing the deal. Addison-Clifton has experience in conducting pre-acquisition trade compliance due diligence audits in a short period of time. These audits require: (1) identifying goods that fall under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”); (2) re-classifying goods, if necessary; (3) sequestering ITAR-controlled goods and technical data; and (4) gathering facts for self-disclosure(s), if necessary.
