Editors' Summary:


On October 30, 2009, the Environmental Law Institute held its Fall Practice Update, an annual half-day seminar addressing critical issues in environmental law and management. The following is a transcript of one panel discussion from that event. In this panel, senior practitioners discussed the issues involved in cross-border movement of imported items, from parts and components to manufactured goods, the increased enforcement scrutiny at the border, and steps attorneys can take to counsel companies on avoiding enforcement issues.
