      Routed Export Transactions: Responsibilities of the USPPI
      Wednesday, May 21, 2014  (1PM EST)/  $175*
      (12PM CST, 11AM MST, 10AM PST)

      Routed transactions are common occurrences in International Trade. A "Routed Transaction" means that the customer or buyer is in control of the export purchase, from the seller or U.S. exporter's shipping point to the ultimate consignee. However the U.S. seller still has regulatory compliance responsibilities even though the buyer, through their designated agent, may be responsible for the routing and actual electronic export information (EEI) filing. Penalties for incomplete, inaccurate or deceptive filings can be significant and are still the responsibility of the U.S. exporter.

      Why you should attend

      • What is a Routed Transaction
      • The responsibilities of the Seller, Buyer, and Forwarder (Agent)
      • Information required from the Seller to Buyer/Designated Agent
      • What the Seller needs to do if they want to file the EEI
      • What information does the Seller need from the filing agent

      Who should attend

      • Export Compliance Staff
      • International Sales Personnel
      • Export / Logistics Supervisors and Managers
      • Persons in charge of filing EEI
