UPDATE ON CUSTOMS LAW FOR CUSTOMS PRACTITIONERS

 UPDATE ON CUSTOMS LAW FOR CUSTOMS PRACTITIONERS
 WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Harvey B. Fox, president of


the Customs Lawyers Association (CLA), and the director of the U.S. Customs Office of Regulations and Rulings, is inviting the trade community to an update on Customs law (procedures and court decisions) to be held Dec. 4, 1992, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Omni Georgetown Hotel. A luncheon featuring an address by Gary Edson, Esq., general counsel, U.S. Trade Representative, is included in the program. Early reservations are advised and should be made by Nov. 18.
 The event will take a close look at Customs procedures relating to commercial importations, including the latest developments affecting Customs entry procedures and commercial compliance, mitigation guidelines and commercial rulings initiatives.
 There also will be lively panel discussions involving recent court cases having a significant impact upon customs practices. The court cases to be covered are (1) the Central Soya and B.F. Goodrich Drawback cases, in which the court held that one does not need to be either an exporter or have had possession of the imported merchandise in order to claim "substitution same condition" drawback of duties; and (2) the Generra Sportswear case, where the court held that transaction value basis of appraisement included amounts for quota charges paid by the importer to the foreign seller of textile quota goods.
 This year's update will include a panel discussion on the hot topic of "prior disclosures" under section 1592 (Customs primary civil penalty statute).
 Registration forms may be obtained by calling 202-566-2507. (As of Nov. 9, 1992, the number to call will be 202-482-6900.) The cost for government attorneys is $35 if they are members of the CLA, and $40 if they are not members of the CLA. The cost for attorneys and others in the private sector is $75. In addition to the luncheon, the registration fee includes course materials, two morning coffee services and an afternoon soda service.
