Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

February 1, 2017 - World Trade Center Savannah will host the Global Education Program,  Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act – Compliance Awareness Workshop, on Thurs., Feb. 16, 1 p.m. at World Trade Center Savannah, 131 Hutchinson Island Drive, 4th floor.

Glynn County is party of the WTC Savannah regional organization.

This half-day workshop will focus on the key components of elevated trade enforcement issues enacted in the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act (TFTEA) of 2016.

This new Congressional act has provided significant authorization to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to increase their enforcement of existing rules and regulations which may result in an elevation of compliance risk for U.S. importers.

The class will review the TFTEA components providing clarification on the responsibilities of U.S. importers to avoid costly fines and penalties. During this program, regional businesses and importers will have the opportunity to learn about:

  • Anti-dumping and countervailing duty management

  • Social Compliance responsibilities and foreign supplier verifications

  • Trademark and Intellectual property rights management and controls

  • De minimis rule amendments and low value import management

  • C-TPAT benefits demonstrated by CBP to the trade community

  • Free Trade Agreement verification, validation and demonstration of origin eligibility

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has emphasized the proactive and strict enforcement of U.S. trade laws to protect national economic security, facilitate fair trade, support the health and safety of the American people and ensure a level playing field for U.S. industry.

Attendees will earn 3 NCBFAA CCS Points.

Cost of attendance is $50 per person. To register and more information visit
