Resolving Disputes with Customs and Border Protection

At one time or another, even the savviest importer will receive a detention or seizure notice, demand for redelivery of imported goods, notice of penalty, or a claim of liquidated damages from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Of course, the best way to handle customs disputes is to prevent them from occurring in the first place. But when that is not a possibility, importers need to know how to effectively respond to CBP, diffuse the situation, and mitigate liability to the best of their ability. In this webinar, international trade attorney Melissa Proctor of Miller Proctor Law PLLC will discuss the array of enforcement tools at CBP’s disposal and provide inside best practices for successfully handling disputes with CBP.

Specific topics will include:

  • Dealing with Requests for Information (CBP Form 28) and Notices of Action (CBP Form 29)
  • Handling detentions, seizures, and forfeitures (IPR and non-IPR cases)
  • Critical distinctions between penalties and liquidated damages
  • Penalties for Electronic Export Information (EEI) filing errors
  • Consequences of country of origin marking errors
  • Recordkeeping failures
  • Successful strategies for corrective and remedial actions: Post Summary Correction, AES Correction, Prior/Voluntary Disclosures
  • Winning strategies for Petitions for Relief
  • How to reduce the likelihood and occurrence of CBP disputes altogether

    The webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Melissa Proctor, who has been advising companies for over 25 years on the full range of issues involving the customs laws and regulations, export controls, embargoes and economic sanctions compliance, anti-corruption/anti-bribery compliance, and other government agency requirements relating to the cross-border movement of goods, information, and services.
