A Checklist That Every Exporter Should Have

As a member of the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, we’re sharing a link to one of the best export checklists out there. You can trust its content, as Mohawk’s own Robert Stein (Vice President, Customs and Trade Compliance) was on the committee that helped develop it.

This checklist explains exporter or U.S. Principal Party in Interest (USPPI) responsibilities, includes links to the most pertinent U.S. government resources, and includes a USPPI checklist on the second page.

What’s so great about this checklist? Not only does it ask the right questions (Are my products on the U.S. Munitions List? Am I shipping to a destination of concern?) but it also cites the relevant regulations for each item to check and includes links to where you can find the answers to these questions.

For example, underneath “Am I shipping to a destination of concern?” is a link to the list of embargoed countries maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
