ST&R maintains an active and aggressive customs audit practice. Many of our attorneys started their careers as counsel for U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and the ST&R Audit Group includes a team of former auditors from CBP's Regulatory Audit and Agency Advisory Services as well. This experience allows us to help clients understand CBP's expectations for compliance, identify import compliance risks, and establish robust systems of import-related internal controls to manage risks. Our efforts result in recommendations for improvements and corrective actions as well as the identification of opportunities for increased efficiency and cost savings. In addition, should an importer find itself subject to a CBP enforcement process, ST&R is well-positioned to help it successfully navigate through every stage of that process, from communications with government authorities to investigations and audits. Our customs audit services include the following.
