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 enterprises to structure international business transactions and navigate complex U.S. export compliance regulations.

Our services include advising on, drafting and filing of applications for U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security “dual use” export licenses, making in-house license determinations through interpretation of various sections of the Commerce Control List (CCL), advising on eligibility for use of license exceptions and related documentation requirements, drafting and filing commodity jurisdiction reviews for determining whether products are under the licensing jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of State or U.S. Department of Commerce, advising on the preparation of U.S. export documentation to ensure compliance with the Export Administration Regulations, assistance in navigating US Customs regulations and other technical trade regulation. We also advise on the broader aspects of international marketing, strategic planning, and new foreign market development.

Our core competency lies in working with manufacturers to internationalize their operations through a nuanced understanding of complex U.S. export regulations for products, software and technical data that has both commercial and military application, known as “dual use” items, as well as military technologies regulated by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), U.S. Department of State (DoS), and U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). We are a boutique firm with highly advanced research skills along with over twenty-five years of “hands-on” expertise working in import/export operations. At TSI Global Consulting we have deep technical applied knowledge of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations [15 CFR Parts 730-774 or”EAR”]. We also advise our clients on compliance with the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”) as well as commercial export regulations and Federal filing and reporting requirements found within the U.S. Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR). On the import side of the business, we advise on U.S. import compliance and Customs regulations that are delineated in Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations.  Through the use of deep, technical regulatory research combined with years of experience solving operational issues related to high volume exports, TSI Global Consulting is able, with confidence, to solve your compliance concerns. We “unlock the uncertainty” and ensure that our clients are in full compliance with  the multitude of export regulatory requirements that are imposed upon them by the complex web of U.S. Federal agencies that hold jurisdiction over international trade in goods, services, software and technical data.

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 a background that includes “hands on” operational experience working in the import/export business. Our key differentiator is that we are not only an export adviser to corporate management, but that 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 years of experience working within the operational bowels and senior management of export oriented manufacturing companies, both in the United States, and abroad.
