Webinar Description

Trade compliance ensures that legislation and regulatory requirements pertaining to the import and export of commercial shipments are being met. U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforces trade compliance by conducting audits of shipments entering the United States and issuing fines to those who are found to be in violation of legislative or regulatory standards.

This webinar will help importers prepare for a customs audit by explaining the different types of CBP audits, covering what to expect in a focused assessment, and providing guidance on what to do when faced with an audit.

Individuals and companies that import or export to and from the U.S. should attend this webinar.
