There are 47 government agencies that regulate imports into the United States. Educate your teams on who, what, where, when, and how other agencies coordinate with CBP. Hear directly from CBP on how agency requirements are converging and what this means for your day-to-day operations:
  • How do you know when there are “other federal agency requirements” applicable to your imported products
  • Who do you contact at each federal agency when you have questions
  • What happens when your cargo clears with U.S. Customs, but violates another federal agency requirement?
  • Understanding CBP’s role as the border enforcement agency
    • Contrasting FDA, CPSC, EPA, USDA, DOJ roles and responsibilities
  • Identifying transactions that involve multiple agencies
  • Determining which regulatory requirements apply
