As a customs and trade compliance executive, your accountability is expanding beyond the new European customs requirements. You need to stay on top of the rules and global best practices in many countries in this changing environment. There is a general worldwide trend to tighten rules, strictly enforce documentation and other requirements, and penalize non-compliance.

The Authorised Economic Operation (AEO) Certification and the Harmonised System for 2007 are at the forefront of the most hotly debated issues. The increase of organized cross-border crime and the threat of terrorism are of particular concern and MNCs all over Europe need to be ready for the AEO implementation in January 2008. It is the right time for you to plan, budget your IT enhancement and create a global corporate compliance & ethics culture beforehand.

No need to reiterate just how impossible it can be to accurately classify goods under the HS without strong knowledge of the HS structure and rules. As, you are responsible for providing accurate HS codes to your freight forwarders, Customs Brokers, Customs Authorities and customers, you should therefore be prepared for the new HS 2007 to develop a global classification strategy aimed at uniformity. So don’t miss the opportunity to hear from the industry experts & network with your colleagues.
