On Tuesday, October 23rd, USA-ITA and Associate Member Vandegrift hosted a webinar on techniques to manage trade preference programs and ensure regulatory compliance.

Reliability and confidence in the entries made under a trade preference claim are key factors to successfully participating in the programs. Janet Labuda, Vice President of Global Compliance at Vandegrift, along with USA-ITA President Julia K. Hughes and representatives from other industry associations, are currently working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection on a proposal for a pilot program that will incorporate software solutions to pre-validate an importer’s trade preference supply chain thereby reducing potential post entry risk and loss.

This webinar introduced importers to a user-friendly software driven solution to the challenges presented by implementing trade preference programs into a supply chain. This intuitive tool can be used to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze ,and report on the information necessary to validate your programs and minimize risk.
