Have you received an “Informed Compliance” letter from U.S. Customs?

     Man reading letter

Companies that import high risk goods or have compliance issues could receive a letter from U.S. Customs with the subject line “Distribution of Informed Compliance Publications and Other Informative Documents.”

It is believed that U.S. Customs is sending the letter to any business that is likely to receive a comprehensive audit and needs help on how to prepare, which typically will involve an internal review and the prior disclosure of discrepancies and deficiencies.  If you receive the letter, contact us immediately to learn more about informed compliance and how it applies to your business.

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, General Manager – Customs Consulting Services.
