  • CPSC standards and rules for imported products
  • CPSC import documentation and records requirements
  • CPSC and CBP screening, detention, and seizure processes (When your shipment is stopped at port).
  • Responding to CPSC and CBP inquiries and notices
  • The impact of CBP seizure (penalties, product destruction, and other problems).
