Priority Trade Issues (PTIs) represent high-risk areas that can cause significant revenue loss, harm the U.S. economy, or threaten the health and safety of the American people. They drive risk-informed investment of CBP resources and enforcement and facilitation efforts, including the selection of audit candidates, special enforcement operations, outreach, and regulatory initiatives.
Current Priority Trade Initiatives:
- Antidumping and Countervailing Duty (AD/CVD)
- Import Safety
- Intellectual Property Rights
- Textiles/Wearing Apparel
- Trade Agreements
Comprehensive trade enforcement efforts in these areas continue to protect the U.S. from risk of significant revenue loss, economic risk to U.S. industry, and health and safety concerns.
