Read Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The need to review a company’s internal controls and procedures for customs compliance and establishing a regular self-audit program.
  • What steps should be taken when an error is first discovered, either through self-auditing or some other means.
  • Gathering information to make an informed decision about whether the error must be reported to customs, including whether the error has occurred in the past and how much is involved.
  • Should you consult a customs expert, such as your customs broker or counsel?
  • What method to use in reporting the error(s) to customs, including post entry amendments and prior disclosures.
  • What is involved in preparing and filing a post entry amendment?
  • When is a prior disclosure advisable and what is the procedure for submission?

  • Import managers/directors
  • Compliance officers
  • General/corporate counsel
  • Regulatory/legislative affairs professionals
  • Risk management specialists
