All countries have their own Customs laws, regulations and security programs in order to ensure the safety and security of shipments crossing their borders. Non-compliance with these rules can result in fines, penalties and forfeitures of merchandise, as well as significant delays at the border.
CompTIA educates our membership and keeps them current on Customs related issues. In addition, we work with U.S. and foreign governments to make Customs procedures streamlined, effective, and transparent for both government and industry. These efforts are aimed at ensuring compliance with laws and regulations as well as minimizing the financial and administrative impacts.
