Join us for this interactive “webinar” with our industry experts on an overview of the Trade Compliance Assessment program, focusing on the fine points of conducting an effective assessment.

Internal audits are an essential requirement for an effective compliance program. Learn when to perform internal audits versus external assessments and understand their use as an executive tool in evaluating people, processes, and systems, emphasizing recent regulation changes such as MEU, ICT, Russia sanctions, China Semiconductor, and supercomputer export controls…. We’ll also share how to use assessments to communicate the benefits of a compliance program to the management.

From this “Trade Compliance Assessment: An Executive tool for 2023″ program, you will get an overview of the “Assessment life cycle,” including:

  • Why perform an Assessment?
  • Types of Assessments
  • Planning and conducting an Assessment
  • Challenges of an Assessment
  • Reports and Risk Assessment
  • Disclosures – Business decisions/Strategy
  • and other related Assessment topics………

It is ideal for Export-Import Compliance professionals who want to build a trade compliance assessment program and those who want to apply the appropriate audit tools and techniques to improve their existing assessment program. Learn how your corporation can build and implement an effective assessment program from experts. The seminar can be attended either in person or via webinar.
