    US Import Regulation Training

    US import regulations are the laws, rules and requirements that govern how imports are brought into the United States. Multiple government agencies and requirements can be involved, depending on what, why and how goods enter the country. The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency has primary responsibility for regulating international trade and helping importers understand and comply with import requirements and laws.

    While most organizations with significant import activities have specific practices, procedures and a designated team in place, everyone has a role to play in understanding and following import rules.

    As part of a comprehensive import compliance program, import regulation training is one of the positive steps organizations can take to raise awareness and foster business behaviors that help reduce the risk of violations and penalties.
