The International Trade Commission (ITC) is an independent, bipartisan, quasi-judiciary agency that serves as an impartial fact-finding and analytic body providing objective and independent analyses of a wide range of international trade issues. The ITC is responsible for administering U.S. trade law remedies and makes recommendations to the President about such issues as imposing import quotas or tariffs.
