March 7, 2022
The IACC continued its virtual CBP training program with a three-day series of instruction for the Port of Chicago. Over 55 brands from the Personal Care, Apparel & Footwear, Pharmaceuticals, Health & Safety, Electronics/Software/Hardware and Consumer Mass Marketing categories presented their materials to over 230 CBP Officers and Import Specialists from numerous area ports including the Mail Branch and Cargo Center at O’Hare, agents from Homeland Security Investigations, officials from the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration.
Officials were provided the three-day training agenda in advance, enabling them to attend presentation’s specific to the needs of their assignments. The timetable was maintained from the 9:00 am (CT) start to the 1:00 pm (CT) conclusion. Brands wishing to submit their materials to the port’s database were accommodated.
CBP officials and rights holders also received a presentation of the IACC’s Law Enforcement Training App that enhances collaborative efforts between industry and law enforcement, allowing brand materials to be accessed from the field by law enforcement 24/7/365.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the members of Customs & Border Protection, especially the Port of Chicago for their assistance in organizing this event which serves to strengthen enforcement activities and interdict violators. The IACC supports and thanks all members of law enforcement for their ongoing service.
