Importing 201

Advanced Import Compliance

Course Description

Advanced Import Compliance – Import 201. As an experienced importer your company has a grasp on the basic procedures to manage the importation of your goods into the U.S. It seems, however, that is all you do, manage the process. Despite your best efforts, the process doesn’t appear to get any better. You 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. Perhaps your company is already an advanced importer yet U.S. CBP has designated you for an audit. How do you prepare for that audit?
