The Essentials of Customs Entry Auditing
Under Section 484 of the Tariff Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1484), the importer of record is legally responsible for using reasonable care to enter, classify and determine the value of imported merchandise and to provide any other information necessary to enable U.S. Customs and Border Protection to properly assess duties, collect accurate statistics, and determine whether other applicable legal requirements, if any, have been met. Included in the reasonable care responsibility is the need to audit your Customs entries. This webinar will educate attendees on entry auditing basics and best practices for setting up an audit program. We will also be covering corrective actions and record keeping procedures to reduce the likelihood of penalties.
