Trade compliance isn’t all weapons of mass destruction and semiconductors. Over the last five years, there has been a notable increase in attention towards trade compliance matters that impact the beauty and retail industry.  This includes navigating supply chain regulatory requirements concerning forced labor and human rights, challenges to building out a compliance program, and adhering to sanctions and specific trade controls within the beauty and luxury goods market.
