U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) developed the Export Information System (EIS) 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. CBP conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the EIS because the exporting community must report export data containing personally identifiable information (PII).
