We're working on making our search engine more efficient. So, if you don't find what you need, there are ways to take advantage of some advanced options on commercial search engines and find Foreign Trade documents.

  • Go to a search engine and find the ADVANCED SEARCH page (sometimes labeled only as ADVANCED).
  • Type the word or phrase on which you want to search. Set any related options (e.g. "Search on exact phrase", "Search for all words", or "Search for any words")
  • There should be an option to restrict the domain of the pages the search returns. In this space, enter "" (without the quotes). This will make sure that you will only get pages from the Census Bureau's web site.
