Preparing for a Customs or BIS audit

        Do you know what to do in the event CBP (Customs) or BIS (Bureau of Industry and Security) shows up at your door? Have you ever had a request for additional information via fax or phone with CBP or BIS? Has another division of your company been interviewed or audited? Do you have written procedures showing each employee what to do if audited? What strategies can you implement across your firm to help reduce or minimize the potential impact of an audit?
