Bloomberg: What is an Importer’s ‘Reasonable Care’ Standard?

Diaz Trade Law’s President, Jennifer Diaz, is enthusiastic to announce Bloomberg Law published another one of our articles, “What is an Importer’s ‘Reasonable Care’ Standard“! We want to thank law student Isha C. Biswas for her amazing support in getting this article to the finish line!

Many mistake the ease of importing to mean there is no liability or obligation on the part of the importer. In our perfect world this article would be required reading PRIOR to importing where importers would learn about their OBLIGATION to use reasonable care when importing, and actually learn what reasonable care means. This article digs in and gives away TONS of practical guidance. Below is the article reproduced with permission for your reading pleasure.

We’d love to hear your feedback and urge you to SHARE with importers!!

Successor Liability & Export Control Liability

All too often we hear of companies that do not consider U.S. export controls and trade sanctions in their due diligence checklists when going through an acquisition or merger. When taking over a non-compliant business, the buyer may be responsible for any violations that took place before the acquisition, even if the non-compliant actions were NOT unidentified at the time of the acquisition. In this blog we’ll address export regulations, successor liability, a case study, and practitioner tips on what you should be doing PRIOR to acquiring or merging!
