International Trade Compliance Program

The U.S. Department of Commerce Connecticut District office invites you to participate in a series of thirteen one hour to 90 minute nationally promoted webinars beginning in early April through late May 2015.

The International Trade Compliance Webinar Training Program will provide U.S. companies either who supply the nation’s largest exporters, including Prime and Tier-one contractors in supply chain, or want to take advantage of the dynamic global market with focused training about compliance with international trade laws.  The program will also focus on the different angles of compliance awareness and current challenges facing the upstream supply chain.

Introductory Webinar will be March 11th from 1:30-2:30PM EST. This webinar will introduce the compliance webinar series and briefly discuss each webinar topic.
