8th Advanced International Trade Compliance and Modernization

Accelerating Automation of Classification and Controls for Commercial and Defense Trade

10-12 Apr 2018
Westin Arlington Gateway | Arlington, VA, United States of America

Conference Workshop

Building and Integrating an Automation Process To Mitigate Compliance Risks, Exceed Operational Standards, and Maximize Capacity

Planning and installing an automated system from scratch is an investment in time, labor, and cost, but has a clear long-term payoff. Pioneering an automation program can seem nearly impossible-especially if still on a paper system- but with an understanding of the operational nuances and a practical guide to avoiding the pitfalls, any compliance procedure can be updated and upgraded.

Conference Workshop

Developing a Global Compliance Program from the Ground Up and Managing it through to Success

As technology and socio-economic development propels trade opportunities forward, having a globally-focused compliance program is becoming more relevant and a fact of business. By increasing awareness, maintaining high performance levels, focusing on continuous development of policies and procedures, and coordinating strategies to achieve compliance objectives, the end result will ensure compliance with all government regulations and agencies.
