Compliance

Historically, exporters and importers were mainly concerned with moving products from their warehouse to the customer’s receiving department. In today’s global trade environment, the top priority has become compliance. Examination of goods, both physically and electronically, is now standard operating procedure. Importers and exporters are well advised to work with professionals who can assist and advise them on such matters as NAFTA eligibility, Harmonized Tariff classification, record-keeping, and other government agency requirements.

BCB has experienced staff in all of these areas, who work with clients to ensure compliance. Compliance will continue to be a top priority of governments, and therefore a top priority of our firm. BCB will analyze your export/import operations and provide a risk assessment that includes compliance recommendations.
