This one-day course is split in two distinct sessions. The morning session examines in detail the procedures required to deal with customs import and the implications of duty relief schemes to ensure that businesses trading globally can work efficiently and economically. The afternoon session explores in greater depth the current Rules of Origin, Preferential Trade Agreements and how to establish where goods originate "officially". The internal factors to support originate declarations are also covered; something of key importance for importers and exporters alike.

The course is ideally suited for all staff working in import/export administration, international sales, accountancy, and shipping and logistics. It is designed for people new to international business but also for experienced company staff who may want to refresh their knowledge.
