The History of Customs
According to W2C, customs originally began in the 1990’s and were manually created on paper. They then went through a checking and verification process. The documents were given to a customs officer to go through. As the world evolved, this process become inefficient. Therefore, it had to go through changes to match up with the modern economy. With the changes, there had to be incentives to encourage companies to comply with certain standards. In 2002 the Administrative Monetary Penalty System became implemented. This system imposed monetary penalties if any violation of the Customs Act occurred. There’s a large importance on the importer to keep up with and check custom declarations before shipping out goods to foreign countries. Beforehand, importers must check product classification, anti-dumping duties, taxes, and government restrictions on their shipments. They must then provide their customs broker with all of the information. Unilogic works diligently to keep up with all customs information both foreign and domestic.
