Uncovering the Hidden Obstacles of Import Clearance

Published September 2018

Due to these processes and relationships being new, they are typically untested and subject the company to a steep learning curve and a higher level of risk. Import clearance is one of the biggest unforeseen complications along that curve.

This ARC Advisory Group Brief, Uncovering the Hidden Obstacles of Import Clearance, explores the commonly overlooked barriers to import clearance when bringing a new product to market, including:  

  • Product classification

  • Social and labor compliance

  • Product testing

  • Restricted parties
