The rules of importing and exporting are consistently changing – make sure your purchasing policies are up-to-date and in compliance.

Penalties may be incurred due to simple unawareness of a particular requirement. The primary goal of the federal government is to protect the homeland and, thus, the borders, exporters and importers are plagued with regulations that can be confusing and seemingly inconsistent.

This information will provide you with clarification of the roles of the various agencies overseeing the import and export processes; set forth the distinctions between the governing rules and provide you with guidance as to how to proceed as a compliant importer or exporter, or both.
