Any company which imports into Canada can be selected for a trade compliance verification. Being familiar with the process and incorporating customs compliance into your operations can make these verifications quick and routine. But being unprepared or uneducated on customs compliance can result in additional duties, taxes, and/or penalties – as well as the damage to your professional and your organization’s reputation.
This webinar will explain what a Trade Compliance Verification is and the reasons why CBSA conducts verifications. It will explain the 3 main trade programs – Classification, Valuation, and Tariff Treatment/Origin – and will outline what CBSA looks for when examining sampled import transactions. It will also present a high-level look at the process flow of an audit, and explain what happens once an audit is completed.
After this webinar, you’ll have a better understanding of:
Awareness of CBSA’s compliance monitoring
Knowledge of the monetary costs of non-compliance associated with it ;
An understanding of the need to proactively create internal compliance processes to monitor, measure, and correct errors – before CBSA selects your organization
