Welcome to TSI Global Consulting

TSI-Global-Consulting-Jonathan Jonathan A. Fink

Founded in 1996, we are a management consultancy specialized in assisting small and medium sized manufacturers and exporters to ensure compliance with US Export Regulations and to develop opportunities emerging out of bilateral and multilateral international trade and tariff policies.

Our services include advising on, drafting and filing applications for U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security “dual use” export licenses, providing our clients with in-house license determinations through interpretation of various sections of the US Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR Parts 730-774), advising on eligibility for use of Part 740 license exceptions and related documentation requirements as well as drafting and filing commodity jurisdiction reviews for determining whether products are under the export regulatory and licensing jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of State or U.S. Department of Commerce, We also provide assistance in navigating US Customs regulations and guidance in understanding and ensuring compliance with other case specific technical trade regulations.

Unlike other export compliance consultants and attorneys who have spent their entire careers in government or as advisers to industry, our consultative advice grows out of the background of our Managing Director Jonathan A. Fink which includes “hands on” operational experience working in the import/export business as well as deep research skills and experience in interpreting complex government trade policy. Our key differentiator is that we are not only an export adviser to corporate management, our advice comes from years of experience working IN manufacturing management. Not only do we know the Washington processes and how to navigate complex trade regulations, but we also can better respond to YOUR unique compliance needs because at TSI Global Consulting our solutions are customized, organic, and rooted in “YOUR PERSPECTIVE.” We can say that with confidence because our senior consultant Jonathan A. Fink and his network of highly touted business advisers have over a quarter century of experience working within the operational bowels and senior management of export oriented manufacturing companies, both in the United States, and abroad. Unlike many of our competitors who may be good at seeing the “trees” at TSI Global Consulting, because of the depth of our research skills and experience we see through-the-trees to the forest and that is what allows us to provide our clientele with the type of comprehensive and all-inclusive regulatory guidance that is necessary to ensure full compliance with the wide breadth of regulation that is wrapped around US exports. And as proof that we are not merely ivory tower advisers and to keep our hands on the levers so to speak from time-to-time we engage in some direct exporting ourselves.
