DHS/CBP/PIA-020 Export Information System (EIS)

Export Information System (EIS), January 31, 2014, (PDF 17 pages 368KB).  CBP developed the EIS System to collect, use, and maintain paper and electronic records required to track, control, and process cargo exported from the United States. EIS serves to enhance national security, to enforce U.S. law (including those laws related to cargo safety and security, and smuggling), and to facilitate legitimate international trade.  The exporting community must report export data containing PII to CBP so CBP published a PIA for EIS.
