Product Description

Suit Up for Increased Enforcement Action from U.S. Customs & Border Protection

The laws and regulations of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are vast. And they are evolving—particularly in response to changes in importing practices, from the large container shipments of old, to today’s smaller but more numerous e-commerce-generated shipments. According to industry watchers, you can expect the CBP’s recent ramped-up enforcement activity to continue. Is your organization at risk for the feds’ scrutiny?

Now is the time to get your head around the CBP rules that affect your daily work.  Get the guidance you seek from international trade law expert Jennifer Diaz. She will outline the top 10 strategies for ensuring CBP compliance when importing—and help you avoid penalties for customs violations.

To give you a comprehensive understanding of your obligations, Diaz will walk you through basic customs concepts—as well as define important terminology, such as: CBP Form 7501; protests; seizure cases; liquidated damage claims; prior disclosures; the fines, penalties and forfeitures (FP&F) process; and mitigation guidelines.  By the end of this event, you will understand the importance of tariff classification, customs valuation, country of origin marking, intellectual property rights, and free trade agreements—and be well on your way to ensuring your organization’s confident, consistent compliance with current importing rules.
