U.S. Customs and Border Protection has launched a new resource on its website dealing specifically trade-related updates and official messaging about the impacts of COVID-19.
Information found on the new website includes Federal Register Notices, and Cargo Systems Messaging Service communications related to COVID-19, as well as updates and announcements in trade programs and cargo security. Additionally, as many other departments and agencies are involved with facilitating international trade, the links to the COVID-19 response websites of partner government entities will also be included.
CBP also announced that the agency’s Pharmaceuticals, Health and Chemical Center of Excellence and Expertise has established a new COVID-19 Cargo Resolution Team (CCRT) tasked with coordinating inquiries about the import of medical supplies and personal protective equipment.
