Customs Law and Market Regulations

Customs law and market regulations are complex branches of law, in which Community law, national and international law are interlocked. In these fields, imports and exports of goods are subject in places to intricate rules and regulations that are hard to penetrate. Ignorance of the law or disregard of regulations may entail serious financial consequences (eg, post-clearance recovery of import duties) and sanctions.
