MITA’s Annual Trade Compliance Event - Crucial Compliance Updates: What’s on Your Radar?

Tuesday, April 9, 2024 (11:30 AM - 2:00 PM) (CDT)


The 2024 MITA global trade compliance event features the expertise of two attorneys specializing in trade compliance. As subject matter experts, they will provide key updates on the current trade compliance landscape for US importers and exporters. This discussion will cover recent updates to export regulations and sanctions as well as the latest CBP enforcement trends. 

Through sharing their practical experience working with manufacturers and regulatory agencies, these experts will give attendees invaluable insight into the application of common trade compliance initiatives. Finally, we will also hear from “the voice of the manufacturer”: a segment including a selection of practitioners, who will share their experience handling specific situations, their implemented solutions and recommendations for valuable resources and training.
