Obama Asks Export-Import Agencies to Centralize Operations

1 min read

ContractSigningPresident Barack Obama has asked federal agencies that handle export-import operations to centralize those process and work to remove redundant paperwork requests, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Jack Moore writes Obama signed an executive order calling for the completion of an electronic export-import processing system by December 2016.

The International Trade Data System is intended to help obtain shipping data for agencies, according to the report.

Moore writes the 2006 SAFE Port Act mandates the formation of an integrated electronic system within the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

According to the report, businesses must submit paperwork to 48 agencies if they want to export or import goods.
