ARSA, Barfield Team with Commerce Department for Civil Aviation Webinar

ARSA Executive Vice President Christian A. Klein and Bryan King of association member Barfield Precision Electronics will participate in a special Department of Commerce webinar on the World Trade Organization Agreement on Trade in Civil Aircraft on Jan. 18.

The webinar builds on the work ARSA has done over the past year to clarify the applicability of the treaty to aircraft parts imported into the United States for repair (see below).  The session will cover:

  • What aircraft and aircraft parts are covered the agreement.
  • What countries signed it and what are their obligations.
  • How U.S. aerospace exporters benefit.
  • How U.S. importers, including repair stations, can bring aircraft parts into the United States duty-free under the agreement.

The webinar is part of the Commerce Department’s effort to improve understanding about the opportunities and obligations created by the treaty within the government and among customs brokers, freight handlers and aviation companies. Klein will discuss guidance ARSA created to help members navigate customs rules and take advantage of the agreement (order your copy below); King will discuss his company’s experiences with the agreement and best practices to ensure compliance.

The webinar will take place at 2:00 p.m. EST on Jan. 18.  The cost to participate is $25.  For more information or to register, go to:

The guidance is available for free to ARSA members and may be ordered by visiting arsa.org/publications or completing the form below.
