The United States regulates imports for economic and security reasons, and they view the import process as a shared responsibility between the trade community and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Importers must use reasonable care when importing, and employees need to know the guidelines.

NAVEX Global’s U.S. Import Regulation course lays out the basics so that employees involved in the import process can better understand and adhere to the law. The course introduces the key regulatory agencies, as well as the consequences for failing to comply with import law. Employees will review “reasonable care” checklists and spot acceptable and unacceptable actions under that standard. Employees will also learn about classification and valuation basics, and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule. Finally, they’ll discover how to comply with sanction and anti-boycott regulations and the basics of anti-corruption due diligence.

Importing is a complicated process with a clear standard of care. Violations can affect organizations as well as the safety and security of the United States. Prepare employees with the information they need.
