Ask a customs lawyer about what and why can go wrong

Adobe Stock

Lawyers are often called by importers and exporters when something goes wrong. A customs lawyer with many years of experience representing clients in disputes with customs and in the courts is an invaluable source of compliance knowledge. However, solving disputes in appeal procedures and subsequently in the courts is a long and costly process (and there is no success guarantee); therefore, be proactive, talk to a lawyer or a consultant beforehand about what and why can go wrong and take actions to prevent the issues.

Customs supply chain management in times of uncertainty
11-12-2022

It is clear that global trade has new challenges and John Finley made a good point when he said that [business] maturity is the capacity to endure uncertainty. The future is uncertain, but the key may well be to have a Customs supply chain that consists of a team working together to deliver cost-effective and quality goods as well as a matching service; moreover, in today’s world of global trade there is an urgent need to embrace and use data-driven decisions.

‘Any person’ concept or What we learn from the UCC about who is responsible for what?
20-11-2022

Legal responsibility is one of the reasons why people refrain from engaging in non-compliant actions or activities. No one wants to be fined, let alone jailed, including participants of the international supply chain. So, what does customs compliance mean for those involved in international trade? What rules should be followed?

02-10-2022

Customs compliance is full of challenges and ‘surprises’ from counterparties, customs brokers, carriers and other persons involved. Unpredictable risks and conditions are the inevitable companions of international trade. However, there are many areas where companies might keep most of the risks under their control. What are these areas? What should companies do to mitigate such risks and meet the related challenges?
