Import compliance and textile seminars
May '10
Samuel Shapiro & Company, Inc. will be hosting two seminars on Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Avia Hotel in Long Beach, CA. The morning session will cover Import Compliance and the afternoon session will discuss Textiles.

The Import portion will cover the basics of what you need to know to be a compliant importer. The import session will also include 10+2 Importer Security Filing and the Lacey Act. The Textile session will be an overview of importing textiles and apparel into the United States, including classification guidelines, terminology, what documents textile importers need to verify origin, and an update on the multitude of free trade agreements.

Training is an important investment for importers even in a troubled economy. During a Customs & Border Protection audit, you will be asked what kind of training your import staff has received. Did you know that the lack of training is a key cause leading to penalties? Spending a little bit of money on training now will lead to significant cost savings down the road.

You may sign up for the Import class only (morning), Textile class only (afternoon), or both (all day). If you attend both sessions, lunch at Avia's Rooftop Terrace will be included.
