In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Federal Government's current methods for monitoring auto imports from Japan.

The Department of Commerce monitors auto imports based on data extracted from the official U.S. trade statistics. Commerce has devised a special report to permit monitoring of auto imports from Japan and to provide comparability between Japanese export data and U.S. import data. GAO found that Commerce has an adequate system which provides an accurate account of the auto import situation. The special report will allow the U.S. Government to determine whether Japanese auto exports are consistent with the unilateral restraint measures implemented by the Government of Japan for a 3-year period.
