What is ITCI: ITCI is a comprehensive,
one-stop source of advice, information, training, and assistance on all aspects
of international trade regulations and compliance.
Why ITCI? Many exporters and
importers fail to comply with international trade regulations out of ignorance.
The unwitting violators not only put our nation at risk, but also risk severe
criminal penalties and loss of their goods. Many potential global traders
simply avoid exporting or importing out of fear of regulations. These fearful
trade-avoiders are denying themselves huge potential opportunities for business
and job growth that could benefit their companies as well as the nation.
What ITCI offers: You can call us for advice
or referral, meet with a staff member by appointment, tap 24/7 into our
extensive, free Website, attend training events on a wide range of regulatory
topics, and even get customized consulting from compliance experts.
We take particular pride in the ITCI Website. We believe
it to be the most comprehensive, free Web portal of its kind. It covers the
entire gamut ofU.S., foreign-country, and multilateral trade laws and
regulations. See the Regulatory FAQ Database with over 1,000
authoritative FAQs across all these areas; the Regulatory Database with
hundreds of regulatory terms/acronyms, laws/regulations, treaties/agreements,
documents, and regulatory bodies; the Trade Information Database with
over 1,000 deep links to trade-related information in 12 broad categories; the Export-Import
Basics Kit;the Events Calendar; and many other
helpful compliance tools and resources. We will continue to build the
databases where gaps exist.
We encourage you to Contact Uswith your comments and suggestions, especially those
relevant to the three ITCI databases and the Events Calendar.
