March 7th 2018 – This half-day seminar is designed specifically for U.S Customhouse Brokers who recognize that the prevention of legal difficulties with the U.S Customs and Border Protection, surety companies or with your clients requires foresight, planning and the training that this seminar can begin to provide. The course will be divided between how to prevent lawsuits between you and your clients or surety and what steps a Customhouse Broker must take to avoid being in trouble with CBP.
