Adams Consulting Announces 'How To' Webinar for Importers: 'A Step-by-Step Approach to Implementing a '10+2' Compliance Program'

While the countdown to mandatory compliance with CBP's Importer Security Filing (ISF) grows shorter, the majority of importers continue to struggle with the breadth and depth of its requirements. The issue, as many in the importing community will attest, is not only a need to better understand the intricacies of each of the ten (10) new data elements and timeframes. Rather, the true stumbling block is finding an efficient, simple and affordable way to do the up-front work and in-house planning necessary to begin filing. Most ISF outreach events and webinars offers address only the "What Is?" issue. Adams Consulting is now addressing the more practical issue of "How?".

Details of the 45-minute presentation will include: the Twelve (12) Sequential Steps, hints for overcoming common obstacles, a timeline for 60-day implementation, and resources for more information.
