Import Compliance

Would your import operations withstand an investigation? Is it flexible enough to adapt to regulatory change?

While the laws of importing countries are varied and difficult to navigate, one thing is clear: Customs authorities expect importers to understand and comply with the regulations of the importing country. What is unique to customs compliance is that its responsibilities are not limited to personnel in the shipping or procurement departments of a company. Instead, customs compliance is the responsibility of an entire corporation impacting everyone from Finance, Sales, Logistics, Research and Development, Shipping, Manufacturing, Legal, and leadership of every Headquarters and Business Unit division.
