Our Story

Compliance


With increasingly complex regulatory and trade environments worldwide, compliance issues are a primary concern for supply chain executives. The OEC Group is committed to maintaining the highest industry regulatory standards. This is why, along with our global network, we strive to be early adopters of new governmental initiatives and compliance programs such as Partners in Protections (PIP), Transport Canada's Air Cargo Security (ACS), Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) and Technology Asset Protection Association (TAPA).

Our supply chain professionals participate in Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) committees that are mandated to re-design the processes for eManifest, homeland security and governance with the Minister of Transport. The OEC Group is a long-standing member of the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) and the Internaitonal Air Transport Association (IATA).

OEC ensures full compliance with product restrictions, and environmental regulations - at the local, regional and national levels. We stay abreast of evolving import/export regulations, projected regulatory trends, Incoterms, foreign policies on sanctions and embargos, and the latest tariff stuctures.
