USFIA and OHL Webinar: Customs Audit 101

Receiving a call from a U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) auditor indicating that your company has been selected for an audit is never pleasant. Get prepared by understanding CBP’s Focused Assessment (FA) process and what will be expected of you as an audit candidate.

The webinar will also highlight the recent changes that took place to the FA program effective October 2014 and will also touch on CBP’s other audit programs such as the Importer Self-Assessment Program and Quick Response Audits.
