U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently launched the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 webpage as a means to provide the trade community information on TFTEA related issues. The webpage showcases news updates on trade enforcement and trade facilitation efforts in areas such as forced labor, anti-dumping countervailing duties, and the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), as well as the latest on community engagement. TFTEA, as the Act is commonly referred to, is the first piece of comprehensive legislation for CBP since the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2003, designed to ensure a fair and competitive trade environment.
