Trade Compliance


Doing business internationally introduces your company to a complex world of laws, regulations and controls administered by numerous government agencies including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Department of State - Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), U.S. Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), U.S. Department of Treasury - Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Navigating through the multitude of rapidly changing regulations enforced by these agencies can be a daunting task, especially if your organization does not have the resources necessary to ensure consistent ongoing trade compliance. Recent export control reforms are rapidly changing the compliance landscape and failure to comply with U.S. trade laws can result in both civil and criminal penalties, substantial fines and imprisonment.
Compliance Assurance LLC will assess your risk of failing to comply with the myriad of trade control regulations including Export Administration Regulations (EAR), International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR), Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations. Our experienced export compliance consultants will assist you in developing customized EAR, OFAC FACR and ITAR training, documentation, and trade management solutions to assure your company’s compliance with U.S. import and export laws and regulations. We simplify the process of becoming compliant by working with your team to assess areas of exposure, and delivering your solution as a ‘complete package’ to assure your full compliance quickly, effectively and with the peace of mind you desire.


The Value of Compliance

image Global trade compliance, once recognized primarily by large multi-nationals and defense manufacturers, has become a prerequisite for all companies engaged in international transactions. Trade compliance is no longer a ‘necessary evil’ but a competitive advantage for companies who desire to operate globally, prevent fines, penalties and seizures, and advance U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives.
Aside from being the ‘right thing to do’, a good trade compliance program can save you money, prevent negative publicity, and improve your overall business efficiency.

Are You Compliant?

 Take this quick self assessment and see...  
1 Does my company have a formal Trade Compliance Policy Statement issued from our President or CEO?
2 Does my company have a formal Trade Compliance Department, "Empowered Official" or Designated Trade Compliance Officer?
3 Have our employees involved in processing international transactions received import and/or export compliance training and updates in the last six months?
4 Has my company properly classified all of its export products with appropriate Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCN), U.S. Munitions List (USML) Categories or import commodities with appropriate Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) numbers?
5 Do our employees involved with export transactions check all foreign parties (including banks, freight forwarders, etc.) against the Bureau of Industry and Security’s recommended “Lists to Check” (e.g. Denied Persons, Specially Designated Nationals, etc.)?
6 Does my company have documented import and/or export compliance and internal audit procedures?
