Recent proposed litigation and cases highlight what can happen when companies are not compliant vis-à-vis their trade compliance programs, leading to potential civil and criminal actions. Such actions can cost millions of dollars in penalties, generate negative publicity and, in extreme cases, result in a loss of import or export privileges.

Drinker Biddle presented a complimentary one-hour webinar during which Doug Heffner and Randy Rucker, partners from the Customs & International Trade Team, discussed non-compliance issues involving antidumping/countervailing duty and customs issues that led to civil and criminal actions. This presentation also focused on new government initiatives to combat what is perceived to be rampant circumvention of antidumping and countervailing duties by importers and the implementation of an effective risk management program to avoid penalties and enforcement actions.
