The Interagency Working Group on Import Safety ("Working Group"), established by the President’s Executive Order on July 18, 2007, is moving quickly through the President’s mandated steps to improve import safety. The Working Group issued its initial report on import safety on September 10, 2007, entitled Protecting American Consumers Every Step of the Way: A strategic framework for continual improvement in import safety. Since publication of the report, the Working Group members and key government agencies have been conducting outreach with the trade to obtain input as to how safety of imported goods can be enhanced.
