The Facilitation Committee addresses issues related to the facilitation of international travel and trade including the improvement of government and industry approaches. Members of the Committee focus on travel documentation and other requirements, international cargo and passenger inspections, programs, regulations, and fees, inspection facilities, technology, customer service and the interrelationship between facilitation and security.
The Committee develops and advocates legislative and regulatory positions on these issues. The Committee interacts with government organizations including U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate (DHS S&T), State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Staff and some committee members serve on the CBP User Fee Advisory Committee and on delegations to ICAO.
