Trade Compliance Special Interest Group

Explore the foundational elements of building and maintaining solid trade compliance programs, departments and processes for long term success.

The Trade Compliance Special Interest Group (SIG) offers a forum for individuals involved in import/export activities and trade compliance within UWEBC member companies to interact, share opinions and expertise, and leverage each other’s experiences.

Attendees of the SIG:

  • Engage with a trusted peer-to-peer network of trade compliance leaders, customs brokers, import/export professionals and those who support trade activities, such as legal and compliance departments.
  • Identify opportunities to further enhance their current trade compliance processes and structures.
  • Validate their organization’s compliance strategies and practices through knowledge exchange with other participants and subject-matter experts.

Participation in the Trace Compliance SIG is reserved for vice presidents, customs brokers, directors, managers and practitioners of UWEBC member companies with direct responsibility to trade compliance initiatives, including those that outsource this function. If you would like to learn more about the Trade Compliance SIG, please review the SIG’s charter document and/or contact UWEBC Supply Chain Management Practice Director Wayne Thompson at or 608-890-1298.
