Streamlined Website Makes it Easier for U.S. Businesses to Tap Trade Opportunities

The U.S. Commerce Department’s Trade Compliance Center (TCC) now offers American companies new and simpler exporting tools through its redesigned website at www.export.gov/tcc.

“Our top priority is to ensure that U.S. firms and workers receive the full benefits negotiated in our trade agreements and that foreign governments comply with their trade obligations to the United States,” said William H. Lash, III, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Market Access and Compliance.

The newly refurbished TCC On-Line web site delivers to the business community proven tools to maximize export opportunities:

  • Use the TCC Hotline on the web site to report trade barriers
  • One touch access to the Trade and Related Agreements database with nearly 300 agreements with links to Exporter's Guides — plain-language executive summaries
  • Improved search and index functions put the most relevant information at visitors’ fingertips; search by content areas, including Agreements, Exporter's Guides, Market Access News and Country Market Reports
  • Links to all of the Commerce Department export resources via Export.gov and to Export Alert! for notifications of proposed technical regulations in global markets.

With this latest upgrade of the TCC On-Line, the Commerce Department continues its commitment to offer small and medium-sized businesses one-stop access to government resources for market access support and trade agreements compliance monitoring.
