C-TPAT Trade Compliance (formerly known as Importer Self-Assessment) – What It Really Takes
Webinar: 1 CCS Credit
The Importer Self-Assessment program, which has been renamed C-TPAT Trade Compliance, allows importers to monitor their own compliance with customs laws and regulations in exchange for certain benefits. Over the past year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been working to make significant changes and improvements to merge ISA with C-TPAT, automate the application and reporting process, and identify new importer participant benefits.
However, many companies are still unsure whether ISA is right for them, particularly during today’s uncertain times. This webinar will review (1) the basics of the C-TPAT Trade Compliance program, (2) likely future changes and what’s staying the same, (3) CBP expectations for applicants and (4) tangible best practices for participants as well as techniques for maintaining import compliance over the long term.
