Insights on Import Law and Innovative Tools & Techniques to Ensure Compliance

Since the US Customs Modernization Act, the responsibility and liability to conform to all material Customs Laws and Regulations has fallen squarely on to the Importer of Record.  If your company has any US imports, it is your legal responsibility to “exercise reasonable care”.

As the US seeks funds for the federal treasury, Customs enforcement actions become more aggressive to find material violations and collect substantial penalties. In parallel, more individuals have recently come forward as whistleblowers, both internal and competitors, seeking compensation (moiety) when aware of importer violations. Don’t let this happen to you!

In this session, expert speaker Randi S. Waltuck Barnett will give you insights on import law, show you what the law requires, what the risks and penalties are for non-conformance to those requirements, and best practices to mitigate all such risks. You will also get an understanding of the government’s expectations related to compliance law and what are the costs of non-compliance. Additionally, Randi will provide you tips on how to get upper management support for a problem that hasn’t yet occurred and how best to prevent penalty situations.

Plus, various tools such as ACE Accounts, the Customs website, and prior disclosures will be discussed along with materials to help you develop your own Import/Customs Compliance Program.

The session presumes a basic knowledge regarding the main concepts of Customs Law & Regulation, including but not limited to Harmonized Tariff System (“HTS”) Classification; Customs Valuation; Preferential & Non-Preferential Country of Origin; and Record Keeping.

Session Highlights:

  • What the “Mod Act” means for you
  • What US Customs Penalties attach to material violation
  • Getting Upper Management support for preventative measures
  • What you can and SHOULD do to avoid potential penalties
  • What you can do if you find that there are any penalties looming?
  • How to be Best in Class by PROACTIVELY implementing a Customs Compliance Program
  • How to mitigate risks, ipso facto, i.e., after the fact, if needed
