Webinars will start at 11 a.m. Central
December 11 (Part 1) and December 12 (Part 2)- The Basics of Importing Goods Into the U.S.: Importing into the United States is a complicated process. There are many things an importer must consider and really understand before importing items into the U.S. Any shipment of imported goods is subject to import laws and regulations, duty, taxes, and fees. Release of the imported items is determined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and perhaps other U.S. federal government agencies (FDA, USDA, CPSC, etc.). These two webinars will address the details of what every importer, whether novice or veteran, needs to know before importing. You will also learn the things needed to import, stay out of trouble, and make money.
