On Wednesday, February 24, 2016, President Obama signed the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015. Also known as the Customs Reauthorization Bill, this was the first reauthorization for CBP since its creation within DHS in 2003. It supports efforts to ensure a fair and competitive trade environment with effective enforcement of U.S. trade laws in key areas, including intellectual property rights and anti-dumping countervailing duty laws, among others.
