Why Should You Attend:
The Customs Modernization Act of 1993 assigns to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency and US importers joint responsibility for informed compliance with U.S. import laws. However, the responsibility of CBP is primarily to communicate to importers its requirements for the legal entry of goods into the United States. It is the responsibility of the importer to exercise ‘reasonable care’ by ensuring that these requirements are complied with and that CBP is provided with accurate and timely information about the imported goods.
This webinar will define the parameters set for reasonable care under these regulations and train participants on:

Among other responsibilities, U.S. importers are legally required to correctly classify goods that enter the United States. (19 U.S.C. 1484) Companies and individuals have been heavily fined, had their goods seized, or even faced imprisonment (individuals) for negligently or fraudulently providing the wrong information regarding imported products.
Furthermore, correct classification of imported products is essential to the company’s bottom line. Among other things, it determines whether or not duties have to be paid on the imported product, whether a license is required, and whether there are quotas that limit the amount that can be imported – all of which can make the difference to the importation costs and price at which the product is sold to the consumer. Proper classification is also essential when exporting from the United States using Schedule B.
