Import Compliance

Timely import compliance standards protect you against severe financial consequences.

In this ever-changing global marketplace, U.S. customs requirements are constantly in flux. Our clients need accurate and up-to-date clarification on laws that affect their import shipments.

At Titan Services, we stay informed on the latest changes to customs law affecting our clients. We offer guidance on the best practices for import compliance to ensure clients understand the laws and complete all required paperwork. Our consultants have the hands-on compliance experience needed to help minimize duty and tariff expenditures, avoid violations and the serious consequences of violations, such as steep fines, inventory seizure and criminal penalties.

Titan offers support services across all areas of import compliance, including:

Customs Clearance
Customs clearance processes vary significantly from country to country. Titan’s customs brokerage experts stay current on regulations around the globe and the obstacles they may present to your business. Our team can help you minimize slowdowns, streamline customs processing and reduce overall expenditure.
Duty Analysis and Reduction
Many U.S. corporations take advantage of foreign trade zones, duty deferral and other duty management methods to better control global supply chain expenses. Titan can assess your company’s customs costs and help you develop a duty and tax optimization strategy, using free trade and special processing zones, bonded facilities and preferential trade programs.
Duty Drawback
Every year importers leave thousands of dollars unclaimed that they were eligible to receive in refunds because they were unaware they could receive a duty drawback or didn’t have the resources required to process their claims. Titan’s duty drawback program can assist your company with compiling the information necessary to file drawback claims so that you receive the maximum refunds you are entitled to under NAFTA.
OGA Assistance
All imports are governed by U.S. Customs requirements, but some may be subject to additional regulations from other government agencies (OGAs), including the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation and others. Titan’s expert team understands the regulations affecting your business and can offer assistance to ensure your import transactions meet all applicable OGA requirements.
Classification Assistance
Commodity classification is an integral part of maintaining compliance in your trade processes, and a key focus during customs audits. Titan consultants can research applicable customs rulings, assist with proper classification of goods and help you create a trackable audit trail to support your classification claims. We provide assistance with harmonized tariff schedule, export control classification, USML and schedule-B.
C-TPAT Certification
By maintaining superior security practices, importers may be eligible to receive certain incentives through the Customs Trade Partners Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program. To qualify, importers must apply with the U.S. Customs and submit the appropriate documentation. Titan can help you prepare your C-TPAT application and profile, create a security procedures manual, and train your team to effectively implement your C-TPAT program.
