This course has become a popular session for anyone involved in looking after International Trade and Customs Compliance in a business whether from a management or administrative point of view. It looks at how to promote a strong Compliance Culture throughout the organization (from directors through to hands-on staff) to meet external regulators and HMRC’s requirements. It will assist in understanding all international regulatory laws (handling tariff classifications, valuation issues, country of origin, customs audits, duty minimization programs, AEO status, etc.) Looks at how to develop, implement and manage various branches through the EU/worldwide (including liaison with all cross functional areas, such as HR, accounts, purchasing, sales, finance etc to develop optimal solutions to maintain compliance) and how to establish performance metrics (KPIs), administer internal audits and maintain compliant record keeping. Fully updated after the implementation of UCC and the EU Referendum vote.
