 ITC News

  • The ITC launched an Import Monitoring Tool, a web-based interface that allows the public to more easily monitor changes in U.S. imports.  Monitoring Tool uses public monthly U.S. import data retrieved by the USITC from the U.S. Department of Commerce.  Results are displayed by Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) tariff line.  Data will be updated as soon as possible after each calendar quarter.  Users can query the system for data by HTS tariff line and can see country or quantity detail for these lines.  Import data for the eight latest quarters are available through the system.
