Importing goods is vital to the New Zealand economy and to the existence and success of thousands of businesses here. But it also carries risk and expense, and there are many legal requirements and restrictions. Getting it wrong can be costly, in many ways.

This webinar will help practitioners to better advise and assist their clients.

Learning outcomes:

  • Become better apprised of legislation operating at the Border, including the Customs and Excise Act 2018, legislation operated by the Ministry of Primary Industries and other Government agencies, highlighting areas of exposure for those importing goods. 
  • Gain a better understanding of trade agreements, including the potential traps for clients. 
  • Receive guidance about the suite of trade remedies legislation.
  • Gain insights into the underlying, and sometimes interwoven, issues in this area of the law.

Who should attend?

General practitioners, commercial lawyers and litigators at junior to intermediate level or those more senior seeking an update/refresher on this area.
