Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism Member

The C-TPAT program is U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) premier trade security program. The purpose of C-TPATis to partner with the trade community for the purpose of securing the U.S. and international supply chains from possible intrusion by terrorist organizations.

As a member of the C-TPAT we believe we have an obligation to strongly encourage you to take part in this program to ensure secure borders. Should you already be a participant, we kindly request you to let us know your SVI number or supply us with your certification in a supply chain security program being administered by a foreign Customs Administration.

 For our partners, not yet a member of the C-TPAT, we recommend that you visit CBP’s web-site  and search under “C-TPAT” it will provide you with all necessary information, or simply contact us for assistance.

Our partners engaged in carrying containers and warehousing should follow the seven-point inspection process for container loading as well as the seventeen-point inspection for all trailers/tractors. Information can be found on the C-TPAT Secure Communications Portal, under ‘Document Exchange”.

For our local and overseas partners, involved in container loading and dispatch, we kindly ask them to adhere to the current PAS ISO 17712 standards for high security seals. Again by visiting CBS’s web-site you will find all necessary details.

C-TPAT is a joint government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen overall supply chain and border security.

C-TPAT recognizes that Customs can provide the highest level of security only through close cooperation with the ultimate owners of the supply chain— importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators and manufacturers.

Through this initiative, Customs is asking businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate their security guidelines to their business partners within the supply chain.
