American Conference Institute's 3rd

US Customs Compliance Boot Camp

Tuesday, December 02 to Wednesday, December 03, 2014
TBD, San Francisco, CA

Meeting U.S. Customs law requirements is complex, time-consuming, and can prove very costly for importers if not done right. Non-compliance with customs laws cans result in civil and criminal penalties, denial of entry, seizure and destruction of goods. It is imperative for importers to have a fundamental understanding of how to comply with critical requirements on a day-to-day basis.

ACI’s is bringing the U.S. Customs Compliance Boot Camp to San Francisco!

This event is a practical, nuts and bolts course that will take you through the ins and outs of U.S. Customs law topics, how to interact with and respond to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and apply the requirements to your real-life scenarios. Unlike other training events, CBP and other government agencies will lead importers and private practice experts will provide you with tools to use in your day-to-day work, along with helpful reference materials.

The agenda includes a special focus on classification, valuation, and country of origin:

Key pitfalls to avoid when complying with Chapters 84, 85, 90
Applying section, chapter, heading, general and explanatory notes

Using transaction value methodology
Calculating assists and royalties as part of the dutiable value
Applicable deductions and how to prove eligibility

Assessing eligibility for preferential duty programs
Complying with country of origin determination rules
How to comply with country of origin marking requirements
