    Overview of Recent Trends in CBP Country of Origin Enforcement

    Presented by Michael Roll
    (purchase includes a copy of the webinar recording + presentation slides)

    This webinar will provide customs brokers with a summary and explanation of what things CBP is doing with regard to enforcing accurate country of origin declarations.  This is extremely important given the movement of supply chains within Asia and to other regions, such as Mexico.  While there will be some discussion around rules of origin, the focus of the presentation will be geared more towards understanding the various tools that CBP (and other government agencies) are using to review and challenge inaccurate country of origin determinations, whether in the form of CBP Form 28’s, Audits, EAPA or other types of investigations/proceedings.
