    These are only a few of the human costs exacted by the world's new commerce in hazardous waste. A disturbing, illicit side to this growing trade evokes other images as well: ghost ships laden with toxic cargo, midnight haulers, and shadowy characters in a business with few rules. The United States International Trade Commission is an independent, nonpartisan, quasi-judicial federal agency that fulfills a range of trade-related mandates. We provide high-quality, leading-edge analysis of international trade issues to the President and the Congress. The Commission is a highly regarded forum for the adjudication of intellectual property and trade disputes.
