Responsibilities & Compliance Issues for Exporters

Customs has increased its focus on exporters, with new, higher penalty limits. Are you aware of your compliance responsibilities? This course covers the lifecycle of an export transaction and outlines all the key information an exporter needs to comply with Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Strong emphasis will be placed on building an export management program.

Tariff Classification for Importers and Exporters

The Harmonized Tariff Code (HTS) is the numeric coding system for the import and export of all commodities and a required data element for 10+2 ISF filing. Join us for an excellent overview of the General Rules of Interpretation, as well as the outline and structure of the HTS book. Learn how to apply the rules for choosing an import or export code, and their impact on rates of duty and trade agreements.

This is an excellent course for those new to classification, as well as for individuals who have some experience but require a greater in-depth understanding of how to apply the rules.

Free Trade Agreements – NAFTA and Other Trade Agreements

To determine whether a product is eligible for the benefits provided by a Free Trade Agreement requires an understanding of the rules of origin. Using NAFTA as a primary example, this course will review these rules in detail, outlining a step-by-step approach to qualifying a product for this trade agreement. The basis of other trade agreements will also be reviewed, including agreements with Chile, Singapore and others.

Unlocking the Potential of Duty Drawback

Many companies are either unaware or do not take advantage of proven duty saving programs such as Duty Drawback. This program provides a refund of 99% of the duties paid on goods imported into the United States that are subsequently exported. Duty Drawback can help a company reduce import and export costs, increase profitability, and gain competitive advantage in U.S. and foreign markets.
