Why Should Attend
You should attend this webinar if you are responsible for import or export activities at your company or have compliance oversight to ensure that your company complies with U.S. Customs laws and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). You will learn that audit is a tool to promote compliance. The audit goal is to find any weakness in your compliance program and determine the most effective improvement plan. Weaknesses not found and corrected can result in import and export violations. Ignorance of the law or the occurrence of a violation is not an excuse because even unintentional violations will result in severe consequences. Therefore, audit is the most proactive and cost-effective tool you have.
