It's the time of year when CBP is selecting its potential importer candidates for a "Focused Assessment"--or "FA"-- also known as a customs audit. The ISA program offers an alternative to the FA path for those importers who are ready for "self-governance." Learn from CBP's ISA Program Chief and industry representatives why ISA has gained momentum - as well as what's required to become an ISA program participant.

Representatives from CBP and private industry will explain and discuss ISA requirements and illuminate the business and supply chain benefits to signing up for this growing government-industry partnership program.

In this live webcast, you'll learn:

* ISA Basics — including program requirements and benefits
* Why ISA is beneficial for importers and business
* How to be "ISA-Ready"
* What you need to know about the ISA Application Review Meeting or "ARM"
* The changes to the Annual Notification Letter and ISA Self Testing Plan requirements
* How to determine whether ISA benefits make sense for your company from a cost-benefit standpoint
