Our EU Compliance, International Trade and Customs Groups are bringing together their considerable local knowledge and on the ground experience to deliver their third webinar series. This year’s series will cover a range of customs, export control, trade sanctions and anti-bribery and corruption topics.

Our first webinar will be on Thursday 27 February 2014 on the topic of “Union Customs Code: What to expect from the draft Implementing Provisions and how to take part in the negotiations”. We are delighted that Jim Repper, HM Revenue & Customs Policy Advisor working within the UCC Negotiations Team, will be joining us for this very topical session.  Companies will be provided with a unique insight into the expected changes to the customs rules which will take place from 2016 and into how they can participate in the current legislative review and negotiation process.
All webinars will begin at 16.00 (GMT) on each of the dates listed below and are scheduled to run for 90 minutes. Our panel of speakers will provide a practical overview of each of the topics listed below, using both examples of recent cases and case studies. Our panel of speakers and moderators will comprise leading international trade experts from various EMEA locations including: Alexander Bychkov (Moscow), Ross Denton (London), Jasper Helder (Amsterdam), Nicole Looks (Frankfurt), Sunny Mann (London), Jennifer Revis (London).
