Trade between the European Union and the United States amounts to over $1 billion a day, results in the creation of jobs for roughly 6 million workers for both trading partners, and accounts for almost 40% of all trading activities around the world. In view of these statistics, it is crucial for US and European companies to ensure that they are in compliance with applicable US and EU international trade laws. Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A.

  • EU main importing requirements
  • "Best practices" for EU import compliance programs
  • Exporting from the EU and intra-EU transfers
  • EU requirements for transit shipments and brokering
  • Principles of EU export compliance programs

Participants will have the opportunity to raise issues pertinent to their export and import activities by logging questions during the webinar. All questions will be answered at the end of the webinar, time permitting. If the presenter(s) cannot get to a question, they will answer you directly via email within 5 business days after the webinar has concluded.
