Navigate Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) requirements with SGS assessment services.
CTPAT is a voluntary public-private sector partnership program and part of the US Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) multi-layered cargo enforcement strategy. Through CTPAT, CBP works with the trade community to improve US border security and safeguard international supply chains.
All CTPAT partners must demonstrate their compliance with specific Minimum Security Criteria (MSC) within their operations and throughout their supply chains. This ensures that they will be considered low-risk and granted a range of benefits, including shorter waiting times at the US border.
The Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 provides a statutory framework for the CTPAT program and strict oversight requirements.
We have developed a scored assessment checklist to assist companies in improving their security practices.
