Screening can be a daunting thought for many exporters. Any single transaction can be screened for several factors, including restricted party involvement, end use, end user, embargoes, illegal diversion, antiboycott compliance, red flags and more. And, depending upon the level of risk or any prescribed export licensing provisos, screening protocols may involve potentially disruptive steps, such as securing letters of assurance or end user statements from customers. In order to develop an effective export screening strategy while minimizing disruption to the flow of business, exporters must first assess their risk across a number of areas. This briefing will feature leading local trade compliance practitioners who will share their thoughts and practices for assessing risk in support of developing practical and reasonable export screening protocols that ensure compliance. Appropriate and effective use of automation and screening enhancement tools will also be discussed.
