Book Description

Newly updated, the indispensable guide that has helped thousands of people conduct their international business—trouble-free!

In the ever-changing world of complex international rules, laws, and regulations, even seasoned export/import professionals may find themselves in unfamiliar situations. This comprehensive answer book supplies readers with a clear view of the entire process, explaining the ins and outs of shipping and insurance; currency exchange; dealing with banks; contracts; customs; and transportation.

Completely revised and including 140 sample contracts, documents, and ready-to-use forms—Export/Import Procedures and Documentation contains up-to-the-minute information on new security procedures, the movement to Internet-based documentation, recently enacted Free Trade Agreements, increased compliance measures under the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and much more.

Written in clear, everyday language—and including checklists, questionnaires, and a glossary of international trading terms—this trusted resource gives import/export professionals everything they need to get the job done.

From the Inside Flap

The details of international business are growing more complex by the day, and the consequences of bad decisions and improper methods have never been so dire. More than ever, you need a definitive resource that gives you not only up-to-the-minute business tools but also the bullet­proof, dotted-i and crossed-t legal information you need in order to protect your business all over the world.

Whether you are new to the business or a seasoned exporter or importer, the new, completely revised Fourth Edition of Export/Import Procedures and Documentation is simply the most valuable resource you’ll find, offering an authoritative voice on hundreds of topics. From before you take or place your first sales order to the day the products clear customs, you’ll have all the information you need, including:

• An overview of the entire import and export process

• Dozens of sample documents, precise procedures, and checklists to make sure they’re being followed every time

• An export/import training manual to use with your staff

• Sample contracts

• Legal requirements spelled out in precise detail—but in everyday language

• Questionnaires and drills to make sure you’re prepared for an audit

• A glossary of international trading terms and acronyms

• Important information on the new U.S. export control laws and the heavy penalties for not following them

• New security filing requirements pre-import and supply chain security issues

• New information regarding other government agencies that have control over the import and export of goods, technology, software, and services

Also brand new with this edition is cutting-edge information on Internet-based documentation—such as the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), export license filing, and accessing and using the websites of the Departments of State and Commerce—plus powerful strategies for buying and selling over the Internet while staying in compliance with the export and import laws.

Export/Import Procedures and Documentation also provides instructive lessons based on recent high-profile cases of global trade missteps, including melamine in pet food, lead in children’s toys, and the Asian longhorn beetle epidemic. All these incidents and many more not only illustrate the potential perils of international business, they have also led to increased scrutiny and requirements on the part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and other government agencies. The book will tell you how to meet and surpass all of these new restrictions with flying colors.

A straightforward guide for the professionals on the front lines and in the back offices of global business, Export/Import Procedures and Documentation provides everything you need to understand and establish terms and conditions, manage supply chain dynamics around the world, and keep everything organized, up-to-date, and above board every step of the way.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I teach an import/export class at a university graduate school and I have been using this as a textbook for years. It's the most comprehensive book on this topic that I've been able to find. I like the document examples. Although much of those are electronic, being able to see the actual document is valuable for those who don't work in the industry. It's easier to talk about and understand the data elements when you can see the form. I recommend this book for anyone looking to increase their understanding of international trade.

I researched many titles before purchasing this volume. It wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive but it is an extremely comprehensive and well written book. If you can't learn what you need from these folks, give it up.

Format: Hardcover
This by far is the most detailed of all import/export books. Unfortunately the book contains a lot of unnecessary information for the budding entrepreneur, and it reads more like a college text book. A great reference but a bit too expensive, and probably would suggest renting or visiting the local library and using their copy. On a personal note as a budding entrepreneur, I prefer the Build and Start Your Own Import/Export Business by Kenneth Weiss (although I would like to see a new edition) and the Import/Export Kit for Dummies by John Capela. Both of these two books, were found by me to be an easier read, and in some ways more useful.
