One of the fastest growing corporate positions is that of global trade compliance manager. This position used to be an insignificant factor in most corporations, but the events surrounding 9/11 changed that forever. Compliance became a household word in businesses involved in importing and exporting. Unfortunately, when corporations begin setting up initiatives to become compliant, they often have to seek the support of outside counsel, consultants, and specialists, because there is no single resource that allows them to accomplish this work independently. Compliance in Today's Global Supply Chain is the definitive resource for the executive engaged in global supply chains seeking compliance with government regulations. It provides a step-by-step blueprint for developing a compliance program and making it cost-effective within a corporation’s supply chain operation. Offering the perspective of one the nation’s most respected and informed experts on global supply chains, it defines emerging regulations that impact global trade. Emphasizing the importance of training programs and continuing education, it also shows how to educate senior management to ensure and maintain success and includes a list of resources to keep up with the changing import/export landscape. Providing the company and the manager responsible for supply chain compliance with the necessary tools to initiate all the steps to secure a corporate compliance program in their global supply chain, Compliance in Today's Global Supply Chain is destined to be the "resident bible" for current and future managers of global supply chains
