Trade Outreach Webinars

CBP hosts trade outreach events via free webinars to provide more timely and up-to-date information to the international trade community on CBP trade policy, as established by the agency.

CBP continues to offer live webinars that will be recorded and available for subsequent on-demand viewing over the Internet. The programs will consist of a high-level overview of the initiative, policy, or other topic, and will conclude with an opportunity for the trade to ask pertinent questions. To maximize the trade community's ability to ask questions during the webinars, the presentation portion will be limited to approximately 30 minutes.

Space is limited per webinar, so please pre-register using the CBP online registration process listed below. Although the trade outreach webinars are provided free of charge, CBP incurs a penalty fee for unused telephone lines per event. If for any reason you must cancel your registration, please submit your notice of cancellation via the online cancellation form 48 hours prior to the event.

Past Webinar Recordings

De Minimis 101 - April 2023

On March 15, 2019, Customs and Border Protection's Office of Cargo and Conveyance Security and Office of Trade Relations, held a webinar to explain the ISF-5 Enforcement that goes went into effect on Friday, March 15, 2019 per CSMS# 19-000063. This webinar covered the Final Rule that was effective on May 14, 2018, and expanded the definition of Importer Security Filing (ISF) for certain types of shipments including Freight Remaining On Board (FROB) as well as Transportation and Exportation (T&E) and Immediate Exportation (IE) in-bond movements. These changes were necessary to ensure that the ISF Importer included parties that have a commercial interest in the cargo and have best access to the required data. CBP encourages all ocean carriers, NVOCCs, customs brokers, and importers to attend this webinar to understand their obligations as the ISF Importer and comply with these requirements before full enforcement begins. Those parties who do not comply expose themselves to cargo holds and liquidated damages.

The U.S. – Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA) is a free trade agreement between the named countries, which importers can use to receive preferential treatment, including reduced/eliminated duty.  The USMCA enters into force on July 1, 2020 and replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).  These webinars are available for the private sectors’ use to understand the USMCA’s structure and requirements, and CBP’s compliance guidance resources. The information in this webinar was accurate as of June 12th, 2020.

Please reference CBP’s USMCA Implementing Instructions for additional compliance guidance. Additional information is available on CBP’s USMCA webpage.

On February 26, 2019 and March 6, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention ,Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (EPA), along with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Trade Relations (OTR) and Office of Trade (OT), presented an overview of the TSCA Title VI regulation as it applies to imported composite wood products, component parts, and finished goods as well as the March 22, 2019 TSCA Section 13 import certification date and how import certification will be completed in the ACE-ITDS environment.

On December 9, 2020, CBP provided the trade community a webinar covering topics specific to protests (19 U.S.C. 1514). The webinar topics included Trade Remedy protests, selected protest topics such as submission and amending, Application for Further Review (AFR), Center of Excellence and Expertise (Center) submission best practices, and Accelerated Disposition & Court of International Trade (CIT) filings. This presentation is not intended to replace previously provided formal guidance to the trade community, nor is it intended to constitute legal advice.
