Mitigating Risks Associated With Title 19 CFR 171 - Customs Prior Disclosure


Learn how to manage the import processes and understand what Customs expects of importers.

Importers are required to provide accurate declarations to Customs when importing merchandise into the United States. Despite the potential extreme difficulty in fulfilling this burden given the nature of the international transportation of merchandise, importers may be subject to significant civil penalties for failing to meet this burden. This course will help the persons responsible for managing import processes to understand what Customs expects of importers when importing merchandise, identify when a significant issue has arisen, and manage the Prior Disclosure process with Customs to avoid or mitigate Customs penalties.
