This practitioner-level course introduces learners to the regulatory requirements for effecting the actual shipment or transfer of export-controlled items. These activities are commonly called “customs clearance.” This course provides an overview of these areas in relation to the relevant U.S. compliance regimes, including the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the Federal Trade Regulations, and Customs and Border Protection regulations.
These activities include preparation of customs clearance documentation, decrementation of authorizations, and recordkeeping. Specifically, this course will identify the different requirements for hardware and technical information under the ITAR and the EAR, as well as the submission methods to CBP. This course will also discuss the different requirements for permanent transactions and temporary transactions. Transactions involving hand-carry scenarios, self-decrementation, domestic transactions with foreign persons, and shipments using government transport will also be discussed. Most importantly, this course discusses best practices for conducting customs activities.
