Who Is In Charge Of Trade Compliance?

An important and somewhat sensitive question related to responsibility for compliance was recently asked of the ICPA membership. As companies look for ways to reduce the number of employees and cut costs, a function that doesn’t generate revenue, such as trade compliance, might have a big bullseye painted on it. We would like to take a short poll to determine how companies manage their trade compliance responsibilities. Participate in our poll located on the top right side of the blog and check back to see how your colleagues respond.

Trade compliance functions for my company are performed:

 Externally for imports
 Externally for exports
 Internally for imports
 Internally for exports
 Compliance? What Compliance?

Feel free to post your comments for and against outsourcing trade compliance.
