U.S. Import Regulations, Procedures and Guidelines
By John Goodrich
Do you depend so much on your customs broker to manage your import entry process that nobody at your company really knows what they’re doing? If so, you’re setting yourself up for trouble. Too many importers find out too late that they’re primarily accountable for any errors that their broker makes.
The brokerage and forwarding industry bears some of the responsibility for this problem by perpetuating the idea that they are a one-stop shop able to handle all the steps in the import logistics process from transportation to customs clearance to final delivery. In reality, they can only perform as well as the information you share with them. The more you collaborate with your broker the more compliant your import program will be. The more you understand about the import entry processes, the more you will be able to help them to help you!
Import Regulations, Procedures and Guidelines delves into the regulatory aspects of the U.S. import process—specifically U.S. customs entry—so that you’ll have the knowledge you need to work successfully with your broker.
The book focuses on the five core competencies required to make accurate customs entries and ensure compliance with U.S. Customs regulations: value, country of origin, classification, duty, and record keeping.
