Customs, Logistics & Transportation

This program produces high-value events for members and issue stakeholders featuring prominent local practitioners and experts alongside representatives from U.S. regulatory agencies, such as Customs & Border Protection and Immigration & Customs Enforcement.  Given the broad spectrum of issues related to customs work, this program team has made it a priority to work collaboratively with other WIIT program sections, including International Agreements/WTO, Agriculture and Intellectual Property.  Past events have focused on the intersection of governance and business relating to:

  • Customs and the importation of goods
  • Transfer pricing
  • Duty assessment
  • Valuation
  • Rules of origin
  • Customs compliance programs
  • Intellectual property rights protection
  • U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule and its relation to the World Customs Organization
