Event description:

The FDA continues to change its import program to better manage new problems and to use new procedures to make the whole process easier. The FDA and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are relying more and more on computer programs to expedite the import process. When and how you use these programs can make a big difference in the net profit derived from even a single shipment. The new Voluntary Qualified Importer Program (VQIP) is one such example. Another example is CBP’s and FDA’s implementation of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) program became mandatory for importers in 2016. If you fail to correctly use new import procedures and programs, you will be operating under an expensive disadvantage. Learning Objectives: FDA’s new cost-saving import programs Understand how U.S. Customs and FDA legal requirements intersect Know how to manage foreign suppliers Understand FDA’s internal procedures Learn how to mitigate and resolve import detentions Learn how to avoid common problems Develop practical ways to improve your import and export business You will be able to answer the following questions with this course without saying, “I don’t know?” What are the FDA’s import legal requirements and policy? How do you deal with the FDA and the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol procedures? What happens when your product is detained? What happens if a foreign manufacturer is in trouble with the FDA? Who will Benefit: The FDA’s regulatory controls for imported and exported devices have become increasingly pervasive and stringent.
