Welcome To AFTA™
The American Free Trade Association (AFTA) has provided a voice to the secondary marketplace for over 30 years. AFTA works with industry, legislative leaders, regulatory officials and coalition members to ensure that genuine, branded consumer products are lawfully distributed across borders, providing American consumers with greater access to cost-effective, safe and authentic merchandise.
This year, Lee Sandler, Esq., on behalf of the American Free Trade Association (“AFTA”) conducted a training webinar for Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”) personnel about parallel imports. AFTA was also pleased to host a congressional staff briefing in Washington , D.C. during which Lee Sandler, Fred Paliani and Lauren Perez similarly provided an overview of the secondary marketplace and the ongoing issues challenging our industry.
