Importer Self-Assessment – What It Really Takes
Webinar: 1 CCS Credit
ISA allows importers to monitor their own compliance with customs laws and regulations in exchange for certain benefits, but many companies are still unsure whether this program is right for them. This webinar will cover the basics of ISA and what applicants can expect but will also offer an in-depth examination of internal controls, including best practices in key areas such as value, classification, free trade agreements and preference programs, intellectual property rights, antidumping and countervailing duties and record keeping. Self-monitoring approaches and techniques to maintain compliance over the long term will be discussed as well.
