Expanding Export Markets for U.S. Softwood Products
Helping industry organizations establish and grow sales around the world
The government is planning to streamline the import/export process with a new International Trade Data System, launching on November 1, 2015. The system aims to save time and paper with an electronic database that will afford agencies access to shipment data and allow them to submit documentation to easily comply with Customs and Border Protection. Since that crucial information is currently only in hardcopy, ITDS will expedite communication between CBP and agencies, and better ensure security of cargo. There are plenty of educational webinars and workshops to learn more.
Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g. Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
To file a program complaint of discrimination, complete the USDA Program Discrimination Complaint Form, (AD-3027) found online at: How to File a Complaint, and at any USDA office, or write a letter addressed to USDA and provide in the letter all of the information requested in the form. To request a copy of the complaint form, call (866) 632-9992. Submit your completed form or letter to USDA by:
