Let Us Help You

Commodity Jurisdiction: 

Not sure whether your product is covered under the ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations or the EAR (Export Administration Regulations.  Let me help you get that determinization.

Import Compliance: 

Import responsibilities always are the sole responsibility of the Importer of Record.  There are many things that can go wrong – Incorrect classifications, incorrect value declared with US Customs.  Are you taking advantage of the trade agreements when possible?

Voluntary Disclosures:

The U.S. relations governing export transactions are highly complex, especially the ITAR.  If you believe that your company has violated the export regulations it is recommended that you file a voluntary disclosure.  A voluntary disclosure  can be a benefit to a company when a mistake has been identified.   It shows proper due diligence in that you have detected and now are correcting a potential violation if the proper information l not reported at the time of export. 

Compliance Program: 

We can develop your written compliance program including, policies and procedures.  Are you screening your visitors, suppliers, customers and ultimate business owners when required? Managing a compliance program can be overwhelming and intimidating.  The regulations change often.  Let TCC help you navigate this landscape and the complexities of the regulations. 

What does Compliance mean to your company?  With frequent changes in the Trade Regulations, the need to understand and stay up to date on how these changes will impact your company. 

Auditing: 

Every compliance program must include an audit plan.  We can help by reviewing your policies and procedures periodically to make sure they are currently with your business procedures.

We can audit export and import shipments, licenses, license logs, Destination Control statements, use of exemptions and exceptions. We can review your foreign visitors, screening of visitors, suppliers, customers and contractors. 

We review licenses and agreements to ensure adherence to the provisos and conditions are being followed.

Customized Training: 

The most critical part of your Trade Compliance program is training.  Educating your entire staff with awareness of export controls is vital.  Certain levels of your organizations will require specialized training based on their jobs. Training can minimize risk of violations.  Having a good training program can be a mitigating factor if there is a compliance failure.  TCC can develop a customized training program to fit your business based on what you do. 

Different types of training include but not limited to General Awareness, understanding technical data transfers, recognizing Red Flags,  New Hire training, and Record Keeping requirements.
