Important Changes to Korean Import Law and Tariffs
Korean tariff and customs regulations change every few months.
Unfortunately, these updates are not provided in English.
Failure to keep track of these new amendments could result in large amounts of money being wasted.
Embassies in a few countries and trade organizations rely on us to provide accurate translation of everything from tariffs to regulations on livestock import.
We take pride in the importance of these translations and review files three times to ensure the highest level of detail and clarity.
Here are some samples of the work we have done over the years.
