 'STREAMLINING THE MOVEMENT OF GOODS ACROSS THE CANADIAN BORDER'
 THEME OF UPCOMING SEMINARS
 TORONTO, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. exporters to Canada will be directly affected by the recent Canadian Government pronouncement that Canadian customs authorities will "enhance collection of prescribed duties and taxes on imported goods, thereby ensuring a level playing field for Canadian industry and retailers."
 Import compliance is an extremely complex area involving proper tariff classification; declared values; accuracy of Free Trade Agreement certificates of origin; tax and customs compliance; marking and labeling requirements; documentation and accounting records.
 Now a challenging series of one-day seminars by experts from Livingston International, Canada's experts in customs compliance, will clarify to U.S. exporters the document preparation and necessary audit trails required to ensure their companies can withstand a Canadian customs audit.
 The sessions, to be held in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago and Nashville, will be led by Bob Armstrong, director, Livingston International Trade Consulting Service, and Bert Wray, manager of the Non Resident Importer Department, Livingston International Inc.
