Complimentary Webinar: Customs Bond Breaches and How to Avoid LD Claims
Nobody’s perfect! Sooner or later an importer, broker, carrier or warehouse proprietor is bound to receive a CBP liquidated damages claim. Having a clearer understanding of CBP’s enforcement process will help your company handle these claims and potentially avoid them to begin with. In this webinar we will discuss:
- Bond requirements and the roles and responsibilities of the parties
- What constitutes a failure to redeliver, shortage and irregular deliveries, including late deliveries, non-delivery and theft
- The administrative process – assessment, petitions and mitigation of claims
- Canceling or settling claims through an “offer to compromise”
- Documents and evidence supporting proof of delivery or export and providing for mitigation or cancellation
- Understanding and managing conditional release periods for CBP and FDA
The complimentary webinar will take place online on September 30, 2015 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm CT. This webinar has also been approved for 1 CCS credit by the NEI.
