The U.S. Commercial Service, an arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, plans a workshop in Greenville this month to help Upstate businesses export products.

Mike Allocca, president of Allocca Enterprises, will instruct the workshop. Allocca teaches seminars around the world and consults one-on-one with companies to strengthen export compliance strategies.

The workshop will focus on the Harmonized Tariff Schedule, the Customs Ruling Online Search System and the six General Rules of Interpretation used to classify export products.

This workshop is ideal for traffic managers, purchasing managers, shipping/receiving personnel, compliance officers, sales managers, customer service managers and anyone involved or concerned with international shipments, the Commercial Service said.

“For new and seasoned exporters alike, Schedule B product classification is a primary building block for successful exporting," said Denis Csizmadia, manager of the U.S. Export Assistance Center in Greenville and organizer of the event. 

The seminar will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Clemson Small Business Development Center in Greenville. The cost is $195, but qualifying companies can have that fee waived under the State Trade and Export Promotion grant. Click here to register.
