We examine the organisation of your customs and export control department: Together with you, we develop tailor-made concepts to optimise the organisational structure of your customs and export control department and thus maintain or restore process management. Thus we focus on the efficient linkage between organisation and processes and the fulfilment of external requirements (e.g. by the customs authorities).
We support complex foreign trade projects, such as the establishment of internal process structures relating to customs clearance, customs tariffs, origin of goods and preferences or export control, especially as part of reorganisation and restructuring or changes to your company’s production structure or supply chain.
Customs oder Export Control Compliance Management System
By setting up a Customs and/or Export Control Compliance Management System, companies ensure that customs or foreign trade law obligations are met in full and on time. We support you in planning and implementing a compliance concept and on a continuous basis, if preferred.
At home in both worlds: Our consulting services focus on the interaction between customs and IT. We act as a bridge between the relevant departments of your company and customs administration to ensure effective communication and help launch your customs IT project on schedule.
It is only possible to fulfil the obligations relating to export controls efficiently and securely by using an IT solution. Related IT –solutions, such as the implementation of appropriate software, require all relevant requirements to be identified and thorougly analysed as well an experienced, specialized project management to be in place.
An internal control system (ICS) for your customs operations can help you comply with the applicable requirements and systematically minimize risks. We will support you in the introduction of an ICS and the subsequent monitoring.
Introduction of a risk management system for customs processes
A common approach to increase transparency, security and efficiency of your customs processes is the implementing of a risk management system. We provide support by identifying weak points and realising the potential for improvement. Thus you reduce the risk of personal liability for management and employees.
The independent perspective offered by coaching can prove helpful for both managers and operative staff involved in foreign trade, customs and export controls.

Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains
The Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obilgations in Supply Chains requires companies to comprehensively protect human rights and the environment along their supply chains. The legal requirements are interdisciplinary, which means that various corporate divisions can be involved in tackling this task. With our experience from various sectors, companies and authorities, we can support companies in the targeted implementation of due diligence obligations.
INCOTERMS are a used component in almost every goods-related sales contract, nationally and internationally. However, their impact on costs and possible delays in the supply chain are often underestimated. Thanks to the trainer certification by the ICC, we can support you in status analysis, process optimisation or even employee training.
We support you with the IT-supported generation of customs-related data as well as with the roll-out of questionnaires across corporate functions and help you with the validation as well as the preparation of the associated reports.

Sanctioned Party List Screening as a Service
We support you in screening sanctions lists and offer you various service levels including a report on the SPL hits. Depending on the service level, this can already be pre-validated.
Companies certified as AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) have to prove that they permanently comply with the certification requirements by means of continuous monitoring. Changes in the company must be documented, evaluated and, if necessary, immediately reported to the main customs office. The AEO Manager provides IT-based monitoring support and thus becomes part of the company’s own compliance management. All departments of the company can be seamlessly integrated into the monitoring process as part of their workflow.
AWB Consulting GmbH’s SPL Validator is a workflow-based web application for screening business partner data data against sanctions lists and supports your compliance department in detecting and preventing potential violations of provisioning prohibitions.
