“I must tell you that I am so happy to be a Visual Compliance user! We were even offered a year of free service to stay with our old service provider and passed it up.”


Every company and institution has its own individual license and classification requirements when it comes to export compliance, but ultimately it all comes down to learning the laws that apply to you and staying on the right side of them.

Trade chain partners and intermediaries—freight forwarders, customs brokers, trucking companies, airlines, ships, warehouse and storage facilities, consignees, agents, sub-contractors—all pose significant compliance risks to the companies they serve.

Containing that risk is one reason companies look for partners with Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Partners-in-Protection (PIP), Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) and other government security certifications. And why trade compliance solutions are so essential to ensuring you can legally do business with or allow them contact with your goods.

It’s also why supply chain intermediaries themselves invest in trade compliance solutions—particularly those based in the EU where agents are responsible for export compliance for non-EU purchasers of exported goods.
