Advanced Importing Course

Take this Advanced Importing Course to be proactive and not reactive to a Customs Import Audit. Prepare your firm and its divisions for the possibility of receiving either a U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (Customs) letter of inquiry or an audit request with this Advanced Importing Course.

How do you effectively begin a statistically relevant import compliance audit for your company with a limited budget? How do you respond to Customs’ inquiries? Would your company’s procedures and policies withstand Customs scrutiny? Is there evidence of reasonable care?

All of these questions and more will be addressed in our advanced import compliance course to ensure you and your firm are prepared. You will receive a comprehensive text, which is regularly updated. It incorporates samples of import procedures and policies.

Last minute registrations are welcome, temporary access to ebook will be granted.
