Virtual Understanding Exporting

Tuesday 26th October 2021
9:30am - 12:30pm 

This is a BCC Accredited Course and marks go towards the Foundation in International Trade.

Calling all beginners - this course provides an easy to understand introduction to exporting.

The purpose of the course:

We will start at the early stages of the export journey, looking at the contract of sale/purchase order before moving on to discuss why Incoterms are used in an international contract. We’ll look at packaging and labelling and what is meant by ISPM 15.

We will then provide an overview on export licence controls, together with sanctions and embargoes. It is essential you know what goods you are sending and where, in case these are Military or Dual Use goods. We will consider the role of the Customs Intermediary / Freight Agent / Freight Forwarder, and how you can successfully provide instructions for the export customs declaration - and why proof of export is so important.

Operating in a post-transition world is challenging, let us help you understand new border requirements for exporting goods from GB to EU.
