Appropriate for corporate purchasers, this practical guide dissects the additional costs of importing goods made overseas, peels through the layers of government scrutiny in dealing with the various government agencies engaged in enforcement and regulatory controls, and outlines strategies for minimizing the risks associated with international trade. Stories of U.S. companies found in violation illustrate the monetary cost of ignoring export license requirements. The appendices further explain import regulations, FDA enforcement, and NAFTA.
