New Blueprint for International Trade
(United Kingdom) Plans by the UK government to modernize customs procedures for international trade. A key objective of the Blueprint is to improve compliance, while providing greater facilitation for those traders who abide by the rules. (The New Blueprint parallels a number of U.S. initiatives, such as Informed Compliance, C-TPAT and the AMS to improve security and streamline trade procedures.)
