The Drinker Biddle Customs & International Trade Team continued its series of webinar presentations that focus on key trade issues impacting the movement of goods across international boundaries.

Chicago partner Kathleen M. Murphy presented the eighth webinar titled, “The Art of Making a Prior Disclosure for Import Violations.”

More so than ever before, import violations are attracting increased government scrutiny and penalties. Even the courts are grappling with ground-breaking law that could expand liability under the customs laws to employees of a corporate importer. This presentation raised awareness on when and how to use the prior disclosure mechanism to avoid significant penalties that may be imposed under 19 U.S.C. § 1592. We will cover “Best Practices” in devising disclosure strategies.
