The publication and distribution of the joint NCITD-DOT research report, "Paperwork or Profits? in International Trade," in late 1971 and early 1972 highlighted the magnitude of the problems, the number of parties involved, the service burdens, and the costs caused by the documents, and the tedious procedures linked with them. The report has been distributed by NCITD and DOT to industry, federal agencies, foreign governments, and international organizations. The report has been widely circulated and favorably received by all members of the trade and transport community, organizations and governments. Action was initiated by NCITD, DOT, other federal agencies, and private organizations, to evaluate, develop details, and seek implementation of the report's 28 recommendations as rapidly as possible. This report provides a current analysis of: (1) the recommendations, (2) the background concerning the condition or procedure which resulted in the recommendations, (3) specific actions taken and accomplishments made to implement the recommendations, and (4) future plans to achieve full implementation of the recommendations.
