|Over the last decade, the number of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and preferential trade legislation programs has increased significantly. In response to this current trade environment reality, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has designated Trade Agreements (TA) as a Priority Trade Issue (PTI). The objective of the TA PTI is to advance CBP’s mission by working with internal and external stakeholders to facilitate legitimate trade and address areas of non-compliance while effectively communicating the terms of our free trade agreements and preferential trade legislation. The TA PTI is limited to goods other than textiles and apparel, as textiles and apparel products are handled under a separate Textiles PTI.|
