CBP Audit Surveys: What's at Stake?
Webinar 1 CCS Credits
U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Regulatory Audit recently announced plans to do more audit survey work with importers to more effectively utilize its resources. This concept has been around for years, focused primarily intellectual property rights enforcement, and is now being rolled out to other review areas as well. And while it may sound like a great opportunity for importers to avoid a more intensive review, it could in fact result in a full-blown audit or other enforcement actions if the importer does not take it seriously. This webinar from a former senior Regulatory Audit official is designed to prepare you to undergo an audit survey or other CBP audit by showing you how to implement and maintain an effective import compliance program.
