Publisher Comments:

The details of international business are growing more complex by the day, and the consequences of bad decisions and improper methods have never been so dire. More than ever, you need a definitive resource that gives you not only up-to-the-minute business tools but also the bullet­proof, dotted-i and crossed-t legal information you need in order to protect your business all over the world.

Whether you are new to the business or a seasoned exporter or importer, the new, completely revised Fourth Edition of Export/Import Procedures and Documentation is simply the most valuable resource you’ll find, offering an authoritative voice on hundreds of topics. From before you take or place your first sales order to the day the products clear customs, you’ll have all the information you need, including:

• An overview of the entire import and export process

• Dozens of sample documents, precise procedures, and checklists to make sure they’re being followed every time

• An export/import training manual to use with your staff

• Sample contracts

• Legal requirements spelled out in precise detail—but in everyday language

• Questionnaires and drills to make sure you’re prepared for an audit

• A glossary of international trading terms and acronyms

• Important information on the new U.S. export control laws and the heavy penalties for not following them

• New security filing requirements pre-import and supply chain security issues

• New information regarding other government agencies that have control over the import and export of goods, technology, software, and services

Also brand new with this edition is cutting-edge information on Internet-based documentation—such as the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), export license filing, and accessing and using the websites of the Departments of State and Commerce—plus powerful strategies for buying and selling over the Internet while staying in compliance with the export and import laws.

Export/Import Procedures and Documentation also provides instructive lessons based on recent high-profile cases of global trade missteps, including melamine in pet food, lead in children’s toys, and the Asian longhorn beetle epidemic. All these incidents and many more not only illustrate the potential perils of international business, they have also led to increased scrutiny and requirements on the part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and other government agencies. The book will tell you how to meet and surpass all of these new restrictions with flying colors.

A straightforward guide for the professionals on the front lines and in the back offices of global business, Export/Import Procedures and Documentation provides everything you need to understand and establish terms and conditions, manage supply chain dynamics around the world, and keep everything organized, up-to-date, and above board every step of the way.
