This full-day practical programme provides delegates with the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare and process documents encountered when exporting goods overseas. It is fully supported with user friendly and up-to-date notes (including copies of completed documents) to ensure they can operate effectively back in the workplace.

During the programme delegates will study the principles and current industry practices required to ensure that they can process documents thus ensuring they operate both legally and cost effectively.
