Routed Transaction: Responsibilities of the USPPI
Wednesday, October 22, 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.

This 90-minute webinar will cover the following topics and more:

  • 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

Classification Under Harmonized Tariff and Schedule B
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 (1PM EST)/  $175*
(12PM CST, 11AM MST, 10AM PST)

U.S. Exporters and Importers need to understand the Harmonized Tariff System (HTS) of internationally traded goods. Proper classification is the starting point of compliance.

Our customer broker will explain the proper application of the rules and best practices for proper classification, as well as real life examples. Finally, our expert will explain when to use, and the difference between the Harmonized Tariff Schedule and Schedule B.

  • Your company, not your agent, has the regulatory responsibility to classify products for both exports and imports

  • Understanding the Harmonized System can reduce tariffs, provide the basis for tariff engineering and preferential treatment under the U.S. Free Trade Agreements
Who should attend
  • International Trade Coordinator
  • Documentation Personnel

Best Practices for Filing of Commodity Jurisdiction and Classification Requests Under ITAR and EAR
Wednesday, November 18, 2014 (1PM EST)/  $175*
(12PM CST, 11AM MST, 10AM PST)

The export complinace and classification process has only become more complex under the Export Control Reform (ECR) initiatives and regulatory changes. Determining agency jurisdiction under appropriate regulations is difficult and requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulations. When self-determination cannot provide a high level of confidence that the classification is correct - your best option is to obtain a ruling from the controlling agency.

This 90-minute webinar will cover the following topics and more:

This webinar will provide the attendees with the knowledge on how to properly file Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) to the Director of Defense Trade Control (DDTC) and classification requests through SNAP-R to the BIS ( Bureau of Industry and Security). In addition, this program will further review best practices for classifications that should be part of your compliance program.

Who should attend

  • Empowered Officials
  • Compliance Managers and Officers
  • Compliance Team Members
  • SNAP users
  • Defense Trade Users
  • Any professional responsible for Export Compliance and Controls
