Prior Disclosures
Why They Should be Considered for Potential Mitigation


To Disclose, or Not to Disclose, that is the question

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of missed fortune, (misfortune as well) by not divulging ones mistake(s), and subsequently later being greatly penalized by the CBP, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and, by opposing, end them via coming clean, a confession, if you will

Filing Prior Disclosures with U.S. Customs & Border Protection

In today’s enforcement environment U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) is looking at a rich gold mine of potential violations – including country of origin, trans-shipment, evasion of Section 232 and 301 duties, non-compliance with free trade agreements, intellectual property rights enforcement, Chapter 98 classifications and the traditional valuation and HTS classification issues.

What if you discover an actuazl or potential violation? What should you do? Filing a Prior Disclosure with CBP is something to consider. 

Should you disclose?  Will it get you/your company in trouble? What if you do nothing?

This webinar will cover the process of submitting Prior Disclosures with CBP, including if and when you should do one, how to go about investigating a potential disclosure, the impact of disclosures on penalties, the process of filing a disclosure, and where to find guidance and information.
