Here is a recap of the latest customs and international trade law news:


  • On January 14, 2022, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a notice of information collection regarding a Defense Production Act requirement for U.S. firms to furnish information to the agency regarding offset agreements exceeding $5,000,000 in value associated with sales of weapon systems or defense related items to foreign countries or foreign firms. BIS is soliciting public comments to help evaluate if the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper functions of the Commerce Department, evaluate the accuracy of their estimate of time and cost burden, evaluate ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and to minimize the reporting burden.
    • Comments are due no later than March 15, 2022.
