IDS Textile and Apparel News

International Development Systems offers clients a unique database of news and information about the regulations and policies impacting the importing community.

We cover government actions and Federal Register notices issued by U.S. government agencies, especially by the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

In addition, IDS monitors Congressional hearings, activities by the Congressional trade committees and votes that may affect textile and apparel companies.  IDS also uses our network of international contacts to notify clients about international activities -- whether at the World Trade Organization in Geneva or in the exporting countries -- that can affect U.S. companies.

IDS also offers a weekly newsletter, the IDS Insider, delivered via email.  The IDS Insider consolidates all of the week's news, providing access to key source documents as well as our expert analysis.
