Priority Trade Initiatives

As most of the trade community may have noticed, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been updating their web site. It may take a little extra effort to find some of the information and get used to the new format, but in time, we will enjoy the new features and expanded information. One of the new areas created during the update is the Priority Trade Issues (PTI). PTIs are identified as high-risk areas that are likely to cause significant revenue loss, economic risk to U.S. industry or health and safety concerns to citizens.

Currently, the following seven areas are identified as PTIs:

  • Agriculture

  • Antidumping and Countervailing Duties

  • Import Safety

  • Intellectual Property Rights

  • Penalties

  • Revenue

  • Textiles
