On February 19, 2014, President Obama signed an Executive Order streamlining the import and export process for America's businesses. Implementation of the International Trade Data System (ITDS) is underway now. Upon full implementation, ITDS, through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), will allow businesses to electronically submit the data required by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and its Partner Government Agencies (PGAs) to import or export cargo through a "Single Window" concept.
