U.S. Customs Import Procedures Manual©
According to the U.S. Customs Service’s Regulatory Audit Division, customs auditors are finding that few importers have an import compliance manual which counts as a deficiency in a Focused Assessment. Apparently most importers don’t have the time or the wherewithal to create an import compliance manual. To be of assistance, we created the U.S. Customs Import Procedures Manual This 151 page manual provides importers with the basic import procedures necessary to satisfy the Reasonable Care standards imposed by the Customs Service. The manual is written for a large company but because it is published electronically in a Word Format it can be tailored to any size company. Cost is $199.
