The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a voluntary support program led by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP)focused on improving the security of private companies supply chains via a CTPAT audit. All participants in this program pledge to protect their supply chain from the concealment of terrorist weapons, including those of mass destruction. However, to comply with the CTPAT requirement and obtain a certificate you will need to be aware of the key rules. In this guide, we cover everything you need to know about CTPAT certification, regulations, and the overall process. What Is C TPAT? C TPAT was established in November 2001 in response to the September 11 terrorist attack in New York. It is a voluntary incentive based program where partners work with members of the trade community to strengthen global supply chain security and prevent the supply chain from being compromised by terrorist organisations. Many companies are eligible for C TPAT membership including importers, exporters, third party logistics providers, consolidators, air carriers, cross border highway carriers, marine port authorities, ocean carriers, rail carriers, terminal operators, and customs brokers. What Are the C TPAT requirements? The C TPAT requirements are a set of guidelines that the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency has provided to the US Customs and Border Protection. They are designed to help companies understand what they need to do to comply with the CTPAT program.
