DHS/CBP/PIA-060 e-Allegations Portal


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for securing the United States and its borders while facilitating lawful travel and trade. The CBP Office of Trade (OT) facilitates lawful international trade activities, enforces violations of various trade laws and regulations, and investigates allegations of trade violations made by the members of the public. CBP created a public-facing website called “e-Allegations” for members of the public and the trade community to report potential violation of criminal and trade laws and regulations. CBP is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to assess the privacy risks associated with the collection, use, and dissemination of personally identifiable information (PII) submitted via e-Allegations.
