Meet Your Instructors

Clement Key

33 years of service with the U. S. Customs Service. The positions he held involved every area of the import and export process. Mr. Key completed classification and valuation training through the Customs Training Facility at Hofstra University, Long Island (top 25% in class). In 1980, training was received at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center on the Trade Agreements Act of 1979.

He completed Operations Analyst Specialist training in 1988 at FLETC. His work positions gave broad experience in trade as well as passenger processing. The positions he held exposed him to experience with all commodities. The last position held was as a Field National Import Specialist. This position required extensive work in writing binding and pre-classification rulings. This furnished his greatest insight on customs compliance in the three main areas, classification, valuation and admissibility. The data analysis training he received, provides knowledge as to classification methodology and insight into audit assessment. Mr. Key attended related party transfer price training in Chicago in 1993 and was an instructor to other districts in the Southeast United States. He has real "hands on" expertise.

In 1994 he received the Hammer Award signed by Vice President Al Gore for efficiency in government. He also received many other awards throughout his career. Since retiring in 1995 and founding Customs Compliance Consulting by Clement Key., he has worked as a consultant on compliance projects, as a instructor in import and export, and developed software to ease the pains of compliance.

His goal is to provide instruction from experience and to encourage global training from high school through continuing education levels. He has written eight books on compliance and is writing more in his compliance series. Mr. Key advises attendees to "know your merchandise, acquire all the tools and seek continous training."
