United States International Trade Commission Law and Legal Definition

The United States International Trade Commission is an independent, quasi-judicial federal agency that compiles information on international trade and tariffs. The Commission also adjudicates cases involving imports that allegedly infringe intellectual property rights. The information and analysis are provided to the President, the Office of the United States Trade Representative, and Congress to facilitate the development of sound and informed U.S. trade policy. The Agency also conducts investigations into international-trade relief.
