The U.S. Departments of State and Commerce expect regular audits as part of their compliance program guidelines - even in challenging times. Despite their sometimes negative image, export compliance audits are one of the most effective tools for improving and validating your compliance program.   A successful audit should not be about digging to see how many violations you can find, but instead, should accurately find any weaknesses in your compliance program and identify clear options for making cost-effective improvements.  Today’s technologies permit on- line collaboration and secure document sharing to make a remote audit smooth and successful. There isn’t a good reason to put off an audit just because it may not be possible to include a site visit in 2021 – and there are many reasons NOT to.
