Export Readiness Assessment (Audit)

        Conduct an on-site review of current export procedures and compliance polices. I then deliver a report of findings with any areas of non-compliance, areas of concern, and best practices. I would highlight and prioritize critical areas or violations that need immediate attention, and how to correct them, as well as other areas of non-compliance. I would also describe what some best practices could be to help improve and make your company more efficient as well as compliant. It will allow you to see a current snapshot of where your companies' strengths are and areas for improvement.

I would cover areas such as:
  • Export procedures - Shipping requirements from packaging, record keeping to country specific requirements.
  • Sales procedures- International sales process, checking denial lists, knowing your custom rules, common red flags
  • Export licensing- ECCN#'s, EAR 99- understanding your products and how to determine if they require a license.
  • Insurance- What coverage do you have, and at what point in the transaction
  • International documentation- Proformas, commercial invoices, purchase orders, SED's, product valuations - what if anything is missing from these documents, are you using them correctly.
  • Schedule B classifications - Have you accurately determined your products classification?
  • Sales contract - Review your contracts, are you covering all areas of exposure?
  • NAFTA- Have you determined if your products qualify, if so can you prove it?
  • Incoterm usage- What terms are you using, and are you using them correctly and consistently?
  • Security requirements - From physical building security to known shipper rules with drivers.
  • Sarbanes-Oxley/Deemed export/Foreign corrupt practices act - do you know what these are, and if you are in compliance with them?
