C-TPAT (ctpat) is a voluntary government-business initiative that builds cooperative relationships to strengthen and improve the international supply chain and U.S. border security. Through this initiative, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is asking businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices, communicate and verify the security guidelines of their business partners within the supply chain. In short, C-TPAT is a customs trade partnership against terrorism.
The certification process is complex and multi-faceted. The experts at Camacho & Associates have a deep understanding of the challenges your company will face and will guide you step by step through the pre-evaluation, certification and re-validation processes.
Although still voluntary, companies who are not C-TPAT certified will likely be forced to sell their merchandise elsewhere and the wait times at our nation’s borders for inspection and release will be an intolerable financial burden.
