Join these 60-minute sessions to learn about the additional requirements and checkpoints that importations of regulated goods undergo. We will introduce you to the processes, documentation, notifications, penalties and responsibilities of the parties involved. Throughout each webinar you will gain a better understanding of the interaction between CBP and FDA for commercial goods destined to the U.S. and CBSA's interaction with CFIA for goods into Canada. Remember, a customs release does not equal a release for either the CFIA or FDA.
