Canadian Trade Compliance Seminar

Importing Roles and Customs Regulations

Learn how to accurately complete required documentation and about Canada Customs’ expectations to lay a solid foundation for other trade topics like H.S. classification, free trade agreements and valuation. Understanding the importer of record’s responsibilities can be the difference between keeping and losing your importing privileges. In-depth compliance verifications by customs agencies in recent years require that both importers and exporters establish adequate internal controls as well as maintain well-documented compliance procedures. If you also import into the U.S., you may want to consider attending the morning session that covers U.S. Customs Compliance.
