Creating and maintaining an open and transparent process for consideration of petitions for duty suspensions and reductions...

Welcome to the MTB Petition System.

This is the location on the USITC web site where you can view and submit comments on petitions requesting a duty suspension or reduction, in accordance with the American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act. This is also where you can find all news and information about the MTB petition process. Note that all comments must be submitted through the MTB Petition System – no paper submissions or submissions through any other means will be considered. Complete information about the process, helpful tips, and timelines can be found through the links below and to the right, as can contact information.

The comment filing period is now open. Please look over the site and read the information provided. When you are ready to file your comment, click on the “View Petitions” button above, locate the petition on which you wish to comment and select “Comment on petition.” For more instructions on how to file a comment and navigate the MTB Petition System, please view this ten minute webinar.
