Hello. Can we help you?
A customs compliance program sets up end-to-end support to ensure the compliance and efficiency of your customs operations long term. Such a program serves as an internal guide. It refers to, among others, internal protocols and procedures that should ensure that all risks related to customs controls are covered.
Our customs compliance program covers all relevant customs aspects within your organisation and provides a comprehensive overview of your current situation, risks and potential improvement areas. In addition, it gives you a practical instrument to implement customs process improvements. Our customs compliance program consists of several elements:
The assessment of customs people, processes, and technology is a foundation of the compliance program. It can be also done as a standalone activity - Quick Scan. It helps to identify gaps and opportunities in your customs operations.
This assessment covers a deep dive analysis on a defined customs area.
Customs training and workshops on relevant areas within customs regulations, customs classification, valuation, country of origin, certifications, special procedures or other customs related topics.
Support in defining manuals and customs policies and procedures.
