On September 10, 2007, the Interagency Working Group on Import Safety1 (Working Group) presented an Action Plan for Import Safety: A roadmap for continual improvement (Strategic Framework) and Immediate Actions2 for continual improvement in import safety.
The Strategic Framework providesthe foundation for this Action Plan for Import Safety. Together, the Strategic Framework, Immediate Actions and this Action Plan fulfill the requirements ofExecutive Order 13439, which established an Interagency Working Group on Import Safety and was signed by President Bush on July 18, 2007.
A careful examination of import safety has been motivated by the recent challenges presented by an increasingly global economy, in which U.S. consumers are purchasing approximately $2 trillion worth of products that areimported by over 800,000 importers through over 300 ports-of-entry.
