The Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina is offering a workshop in Greenville that will help businesses new to exporting understand all that is legally required to sell internationally.

The EDPNC and Allocca Enterprises, a leading provider of international trade education, will be hosting an export compliance training course from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. July 16 at East Carolina University’s Willis Building auditorium. Registration is free for companies that qualify for federal funding administered locally by the EDPNC.

The course will provide businesses specific tools and instructions on how to build an exporting process that complies with U.S. regulations, including those that restrict certain types of exports to specific countries. Those tools include an 11-point checklist that will help guide companies to full compliance in every export transaction.

Learn about the following export-related topics and more in this course:

  • Understanding different country-specific requirements
  • Knowing the necessary export documentation
  • Complying with insurance, packaging and record-keeping rules
  • Identifying whether the type of product being exported or its destination requires an export license from the U.S. government.

The $250 workshop registration fee will be waived for businesses that apply and qualify for a free seat through the federal State Trade Expansion Program.
