Importing 201 Seminar
Full-Day Session — 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Certificate Issued Upon Completion.
Your company may know how to import goods into the U.S., but the process is rarely smooth. You repeatedly experience the same old errors and delays at the border, and the specter of a Customs audit or other Customs enforcement is looming on the horizon.
Or maybe your company has a good handle on the import process, but for one reason or another, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has designated you for an audit. What should you do to prepare to withstand the scrutiny of CBP, regardless of the audit or enforcement form they use?
If you take this seminar, you will learn:
- Legal requirement for compliance.
- Types of CBP audits and enforcement.
- How to respond to CBP audit inquiries.
- How to prepare your company for regulatory enforcement.
- How to create an import policy and procedures manual.
Come to this one-day seminar armed with your questions. Small class sizes and a knowledgeable teacher allow for a great interaction between attendees, and the instructor. All attendees receive a copy of the U.S. Import Audit Preparation—Strategies & Techniques for Withstanding a U.S. Import Compliance Audit workbook to help meet the day-to-day responsibilities and legal requirements of your job.
