Why should you Attend?

There are many rules and regulations governing international trade. The rules are standards of practice, many created and maintained by the International Chamber of Commerce, to facilitate trade. The regulations contain legal restrictions on what one is allowed to sell to whom and required (and prohibited) business conduct, with penalties for failure to comply including fines, loss of export privileges, and even jail terms. In many cases, banks are required to police transactions they handle and report violations.

This 90-minute session will provide an overview and introduction to rules and regulations governing international trade and take an in-depth look at some with broad applicability: the Incoterms 2010, the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP), US sanctions enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Anti-Boycott regulations maintained by the US Department of Commerce, and section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Know Your Customer).
