Video | The Importance Of Complying With U.S. Customs Regulations

Licensed Customs Broker and Certified Customs Specialist, April Collier, walks importers through the importance of complying with U.S. Customs regulations and what they can do to assure they are meeting all of the requirements governing the movement of commercial goods.

As customs brokers, we make every effort to provide the trade community with the right tools and information to ensure that your company is as proactive as possible with the CBSA and CBP. As part of our ongoing efforts, we offer a number of Trade Compliance Seminars and Webinars throughout the year on compliance and customs audit among other subjects. Our upcoming U.S. Customs Audit Seminar might be of particular interest. This seminar will focus on the differences between voluntary and enforced compliance, the expectation of "reasonable care", the potential cost risks of non-compliance, and best practices.
