Import Procedures

The BCC now has ten nationally accredited core courses. Together, these form an export curriculum that provides invaluable basic skills for small and large companies alike. Candidates must demonstrate knowledge of the subject and their performance will be marked by external examiners on the completion of each module. Successful candidates will receive a certificate; completing six or more courses will result in the candidate achieving a nationally recognised Foundation Award in Exporting. These courses are suitable for both experienced exporters and those with no previous knowledge of exporting.

Who should attend?

This course would follow on from Customs procedures or would suit as a stand-alone course for those who are only interested in Importing procedures. It would suit those who are currently working in an Import environment who have never had formal training, or for those wanting a refresher.

The course objectives would include:

  • Making the enquiry, areas to consider include product, payment, licences, Incoterms, transport, documentation, costs, terms and conditions
  • Provide the purchase order
  • Movement of goods
  • Import clearance, documentation, declarations, import duties
  • Special procedures

After attending the Import procedures course, the learner will:

  • Be able to demonstrate an understanding of import documentation and procedures.
    • Produce the appropriate instruction sheet required to expedite the import.
    • Describe import clearance documents.
    • Be able to comply with customs procedures
