Managing the U.S. Customs Process: Obligations and Opportunities

Understand the modern U.

S. customs environment to remain in compliance with U.S. customs law.Many businesses today import products into the United States, or manufacture products with major components originating from other countries. Today's trade environment raises particular questions for these businesses. How can businesses know whether existing operations remain in compliance with or violate U.S. customs law? What steps can businesses take to comply with traditional customs laws and regulations in light of recent tariffs on U.S. imports? To what extent do businesses need to change the way that they operate to continue to function in the current trade environment? This topic helps businesses and business personnel responsible for compliance and risk management first understand the modern U.S. customs environment and then provides practical guidance on how to plan their business practices in order to remain in compliance with U.S. customs law. This information also illustrates ways for preparing for a potential customs audit.
