Internal process documents and standard operating procedures (SOPs) are critical. They help to set and maintain the standards for compliance throughout your entire organization; they also help your supply-chain partners, such as your clients, vendors or suppliers, understand and meet your company’s expectations. Importers and exporters are legally obligated to maintain accurate and well-documented processes. For publicly traded companies, these documents also support the internal control requirements for the Sarbanes-Oxley Act addressing corporate governance.
Our experts will work with you to develop internal processes and SOPs that are both customized to your needs and designed to help achieve compliance with regulatory obligations and corporate governance requirements. Whether it involves designing and developing your entire trade compliance process or documenting specific SOPs to address gaps in your compliance program, our trade consultants will provide the knowledge and skills required for your specific situation.
Our process design services allow you to create and document a sound compliance program to gain cross-functional understanding of your processes and improve consistency in your compliance framework.
