Latest Training and Events

Support your overseas business growth with our accredited training courses

As we move towards a new global trading environment, it is essential that export and import businesses can meet the needs of their customers and adapt to supply chain developments. All staff involved in the movement of goods must be aware of their responsibilities, and be able to make informed decisions.

International Trade Workshops

We have observed significant developments in international trade compliance during recent years, with increasing demands on export, import and finance roles. The implementation of the Union Customs Code (UCC) during 2016 now means greater scrutiny of your export and import management, and authorisation for some customs procedures will become more complex now that the UCC is in full force.

The greater emphasis on accreditation such as AEO (Authorised Economic Operators) will also drive standards in customs and security compliance, and can improve the overall reputations of export and import businesses. Formal training for key staff is a requirement of this accreditation, and relying on experience or ‘we’ve always done it this way’ will not be sufficient for accepted practice.

The most important consideration is that as the named exporter or importer it is your legal responsibility to ensure all customs declarations are 100% accurate. Even if you were to outsource some customs formalities, you still need to demonstrate how you manage the requirements.

Our courses have been designed to be suitable for both experienced and novice exporters, and we offer delegates the opportunity to gain a formal qualification in international trade procedures (Foundation Award in International Trade – NVQ Level 2).
