CBP Seeks to Bolster Trade Facilitation Posture Through E-Commerce Strategy

The Customs and Border Protection has implemented an e-commerce strategy to bolster its trade facilitation posture and protect domestic businesses and consumers from threats related to electronic trade.

CBP said March 6 it seeks to address U.S. security and economic challenges from the growing number of imported small packages through the agency’s e-commerce framework.

The agency intends to establish an “agile” and “dynamic” workforce that use technology to identify high-risk shipments, collect data from CBP targeting systems and create enforcement partnerships.

CBP added that companies and foreign governments will serve as key stakeholders for its efforts to assess the e-commerce environment and raise the public’s awareness of customs regulations.

The agency created the strategy to comply with Presidential Executive Order 13785, titled “Establishing Enhanced Collection and Enforcement of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties and Violations of Trade and Customs Laws.”
