Bloomberg BNA Launches International Trade Law Resource Center
New Solution for Regulatory Guidance on Imports, Exports, and Global Trade Lets Practitioners Stay Current on International Trade News and Developments
ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA has launched the International Trade Law Resource Center™, a comprehensive web platform designed to provide attorneys, corporate counsel, and importers and exporters involved in world trade with legal, regulatory, and compliance guidance relating to international trade.
The Resource Center delivers an array of news services, detailed analysis, practical guidance, primary sources, and references. Practitioners can now provide their business or clients with reliable guidance by going to a single site to stay on top of significant international trade news and developments involving U.S. agencies (Customs and Border Protection, Department of Commerce, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and Department of the Treasury) and their international counterparts. The Resource Center's topical organization and advanced search capabilities create added efficiencies for today's busy practitioners.
This content-rich information solution includes full text of current case law, international agreements, and federal laws, regulations, and agency documents impacting international trade. Proprietary Country Resource Guides offering coverage of key topics such as tariffs, taxes, and entry requirements for more than 200 countries and territories are also accessible, as are helpful documentation charts detailing import and export requirements for major global markets.
"International trade law is a complex practice area, with different policies and requirements in place for each country. Today's practitioners are often left scrambling to locate the information they need on a specific trading partner," said Kent Frankstone, director of publishing for Bloomberg BNA's Legal & Business Publishing Group. "The International Trade Law Resource Center simplifies this research process, putting together in a single, easily searchable online source all the legal, regulatory, and compliance guidance they need to confidently and knowledgeably plan their international business transactions."
The International Trade Law Resource Center features the authoritative news found in International Trade Daily™ and WTO Reporter® — with timely coverage from industry-leading reporters and correspondents — and the current analysis and perspectives of top litigators and experts found in BNA Insights articles. Content from the Resource Center — including news from International Trade Daily and WTO Reporter, as well as federal and international court rules related to international trade — is also available on Bloomberg Law.
"The timeliness and comprehensiveness of our news coverage, primary sources, and analysis makes this offering very valuable to the marketplace," said Michael Eisenstein, vice president and group publisher for Bloomberg BNA's Legal & Business Publishing Group. "With this all-in-one resource at their disposal, international legal professionals have a source they can trust to keep them ahead of the global game."
