CBP Announces Organizational Realignment as of June 17
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced a realignment of management staff and functions within the Office of International Trade’s Trade Policy and Programs and Commercial Targeting Enforcement directorates. CBP states that these changes are being made to enhance its policy and commercial targeting missions and to better address its trade priorities in the areas of antidumping and countervailing duties, intellectual property rights, import safety, free trade agreements and textiles, revenue collection and broker management.
Effective June 17, the Textile Apparel Policy and Programs Division will be changed to form the Textiles and Trade Agreements Division. This division will continue to include the Textile Enforcement Branch and the Textile Policy Branch, but the Quota Branch will be transferred to the Interagency Collaboration Division. The new division will also reflect the addition of the Trade Agreements Branch, the Textile National Targeting and Analysis Group Branch, and the Trade Agreements National Targeting and Analysis Group Branch.
