The Customs Modernization Act introduced new terms into our vocabulary – informed compliance, shared responsibility, and reasonable care. How do these concepts affect your business? What are these standards to which Customs is holding importers accountable?

Customs’ focus has changed from the enforcement of laws and regulations for individual transactions to an emphasis on the people, internal processes and partnerships involved in your importing program.

This seminar is designed to assist companies in identifying and managing each of these elements as they pertain to your business and your Customs regulatory compliance program.
