We’re in uncertain times for trade. That means more scrutiny at the border.Companies engaged in international commerce should take note of increased enforcement at the border which can result in costly government investigations and penalty actions. Because of the increased government scrutiny, it is critical for companies to be up to speed on growing trade compliance demands to avoid penalties and disruptions to their supply chains. Companies should be confident that they have exercised “reasonable care” in the classification and valuation of their imported products and should be aware of risks in their supply chains.
