C-TPAT certification is a security and trade compliance program that helps US Customs and Border Protection protect America’s borders in accordance with the current laws, regulations, and international agreements.
What is C-TPAT certification?
C-TPAT certification is a program sponsored by the United States Customs and Border Protection Agency. It gives importers and exporters a way to be recognized as doing business in a safe, lawful and ethical manner. The benefits of C-TPAT are that it can help companies reduce their supply chain costs, decrease their risks of being breached, and improve their risk management practices. If you want to become certified, you should get in touch with an accredited service provider at email@example.com or a phone call at +63 9778151204
Who can apply for C-TPAT certification?
In order to become a C-TPAT certified, companies must be registered with Customs and Border Protection. There are also certain criteria that must be met in order to apply for certification. First, the company must have an established security plan. Next, it must have a record of compliance with U.S. imports laws including an emphasis on the Import Safety Act of 2016 and Foreign Trade Zone rules.
Principles of C – TPAT
C-TPAT is a voluntary, cooperative agreement between the U.S. government and private sector companies to provide a secure supply chain. A C-TPAT certified company must have a formal security plan that includes security measures that include people, technology and processes.
The first requirement of becoming certified is to get your company scanned using the Automated Targeting System (ATS) which includes checks for criminal history, terrorist ties, intelligence connections, and name checks. Applicants also need to perform a self-assessment and prepare an incident response plan. Once this has been done they will submit their application to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
