CBP is hosting trade outreach events via free webinars to provide more timely and up-to-date information to the international trade community on CBP trade policy, as established by the agency.
CBP will begin a series of live webinars that will be recorded and available for subsequent on-demand viewing over the Internet. The programs will consist of a high-level overview of the initiative, policy, or other topic; and will conclude with an opportunity for the trade to ask pertinent questions. To maximize the trade community's ability to ask questions during the webinars, the presentation portion will be limited to approximately 30 minutes.
Space is limited per webinar, so please pre-register using the CBP on-line registration process listed below. Although the trade outreach webinars are provided free of charge, CBP incurs a penalty fee for unused telephone lines per event. If for any reason you must cancel your registration, please submit your notice of cancellation via the on-line cancellation form 48 hours prior to the event.

The Office of Information and Technology (OIT) within US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is beginning the move toward supporting Open Standards based protocols, interfaces and messaging formats including support for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Web Servers. Specific examples of open standards, CBP OIT is exploring include: SOAP/HTTPS (web services), REST, Java Messaging Services (JMS), Secure File Transport Protocol (S-FTP), and the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) . This is not an all-encompassing list; but provides examples of which CBP is moving toward supporting. The move to supporting Open Standards is being undertaking as a cost reduction measure given on going government budget cuts and sequestration. CBP OIT wants to stress that this will NOT require industry or our trading partners to move off of legacy “proprietary” messaging formats or protocols currently supported by CBP. OIT is providing this notification in order to let our trading partners and industry know that additional open standards interfaces will be available in the future as CBP continues to modernize its Information technology systems and services.
