President Trump recently signed Executive Order 13785, instructing the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) to develop and implement a strategy and plan for combating violations of United States trade and customs laws. The CPB is instructed to "take all appropriate steps, including rulemaking if necessary", to ensure that all intellectual property rights holders are notified of any information to determine whether there has been an intellectual property infringement or a violation of a US trade law. This order mirrors authority already provided by the 2015 amendment to the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 USC 1628a). https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-05/pdf/2017-06967.pdf
