C-TPAT Security criteria for importers

Customs-Trade partnership against Terrorism (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 operatives and manufacturers. Customs is thereby asking businesses to ensure the integrity of their security guidelines to their business partners within the supply chain.
