Why Should You Attend:
Importing companies are required to use “reasonable care” to ensure that they declare the correct classification, value, and country of origin at time of entry. Failure to do so can result in penalties or audits. To meet the reasonable care standard, importers are expected to develop the appropriate internal controls and procedures. Nevertheless, even companies with the most robust compliance programs can make mistakes in their Customs entries at times.
What should you do if you discover that your company has made an error in one or more of its Customs entries? There are several methods you can use to correct the errors and protect your company from potential penalties.
This training will talk about controls and procedures for compliance and conducting self-audits. It will also discuss the ways a company can report errors discovered either during self-audits or by other means.

A failure to accurately declare imported merchandise on the customs entry can result in the imposition of substantial penalties. It is essential for importing companies to have strong internal controls and procedures for customs compliance, in order to avoid errors on entries. When errors inevitably occur despite those controls, there are ways to protect the company from significant penalties, by reporting the errors to customs.
