SBDC Webinar: Importing PPE into the U.S.

June 17 @ 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been compromised. Shortages of these essential supplies have led companies and governments to look for sourcing alternatives overseas. This webinar will explain the details of importing PPE into the United States, what regulations to follow, what can be done to expedite this process, and what to expect throughout the process. Topics to be covered:

  • Finding a qualified PPE provider
  • Requirements and regulations for importation
  • Navigating the import process
  • Customs and duty regulations
  • What to expect during the import process: challenges and risks

This webinar will be led by Mariel Huasanga, International Trade Center Director of the Illinois Small Business Development Center at Champaign County EDC.

Participants will be able to ask questions in the chat box, which will be addressed at the end of the presentation, moderated by a member of our team.
