Miami, Fla. – October 30, 2020 – GrayRobinson, P.A. (GrayRobinson) Attorney Peter Quinter, chair of the firm’s U.S. customs and international trade law practice group, located in the Boca Raton law firm, Miami law firm, and Fort Lauderdale law firm offices, will present the webinar, "AES is No Laughing Matter: File EEI Timely and Accurately or Else," hosted by National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, Inc. (NCBFAA), on November 19, 2020.
Quinter's presentation will cover how the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is aggressively issuing penalties against exporters and freight forwarders for violations of the Automated Export System (AES). Every exporter and freight forwarder should understand: (1) the export requirements of 15 CFR Part 30, and (2) how to mitigate any penalty issued by CBP's Fines, Penalties, and Forfeitures Offices for export violations.
The NCBFAA represents more than 1,000 member companies with 110,000 employees in international trade - the nation's leading freight forwarders, customs brokers, ocean transportation intermediaries (OTIs), NVOCCs, and air cargo agents, serving more than 250,000 importers and exporters.
