CBP has the critical responsibility to enforce U.S. trade laws prior to merchandise arriving at U.S. ports of entry, once merchandise arrives at our ports, and even after merchandise is released into the U.S. marketplace. Among other critical mission sets, CBP is charged with balancing the facilitation of legitimate trade that supports economic growth with the duty to shield the American public and businesses from unsafe products, intellectual property theft, and unfair trade practices.
To enforce trade laws effectively and minimize the unnecessary slowing of trade, CBP leverages its expertise to identify the highest-risk imports prior to release. In the post-release environment, CBP utilizes a sophisticated system of reviews and audits to verify import compliance and accurate revenue collection. CBP expertly applies an increasing number of complex U.S. and international trade laws and when CBP detects a discrepancy, actions are taken to address the violation and deter future non-compliance.
To accomplish comprehensive, agile, and uniform enforcement, CBP employs a national trade enforcement program that offers a framework for national collaboration within CBP and among other government agencies and multinational partners.
The below data is only a snapshot of CBP’s critical trade mission. It summarizes CBP’s revenue collection efforts; implementation of the recent trade remedies taken pursuant to Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 and Sections 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974; and trade enforcement actions.
