Before they can get their merchandise into the country, importers must clear customs. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforces the laws of dozens of federal agencies and has the power to hold, seize and force the forfeiture of merchandise and can penalize importers in the millions of dollars. This webinar will guide you on how to avoid problems with CBP and how to get out of trouble after CBP has targeted you or your shipment for an enforcement action.

Objectives of the Presentation:

- What can CBP do to me if I violate the law?
- How do I get out of trouble?
- Customs procedures and compliance
- U.S. Customs and Border Protection laws
- Does CBP provide compliance templates?
- What are the dangers and benefits of self-disclosing a violation?
- What areas of compliance are most likely to land me in trouble?
- What are the things that importers need to keep in mind to clear customs?
- What to do when you receive a Request of Information (Form 28) or Notice of Action (Form 29) from CBP

Why Should you Attend?

Your instructor, Attorney Ruth Rodriguez, has represented hundreds of companies and individuals in enforcement cases before CBP in over two decades of legal practice. Her success record is unequaled as are her skills in helping prevent individuals and companies avoid problems with CBP. You will also learn the tried and true techniques of what to do if you find yourself in trouble with CBP. As customs procedures are mystifying and frightening with all their alien jargon procedures, this webinar will cut through the intimidating procedures and offer simple compliance lessons.
