C-TPAT (Customs and Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) is a voluntary government-business initiative aimed at strengthening and improving the security of the international supply chain and its U.S. border security. Miramar Customs Brokers is a proud member since 2004.
How C-TPAT works
When an entity joins C-TPAT, an agreement is made to work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices. Applicants must address a broad range of security topics and present security profiles that list action plans to align security throughout the supply chain.
C‐TPAT members are considered to be of low risk, and are therefore less likely to be examined at a U.S. port of entry.
C-TPAT Partners enjoy a variety of benefits, including taking an active role in working closer with the U.S. Government in its war against terrorism. As they do this, Partners are able to better identify their own security vulnerabilities and take corrective actions to mitigate risks. Some of the benefits of the program include:
Participation in C-TPAT is voluntary and the application process can be done online. We encourage our clients to join in this program to enjoy its benefits. More information can be found online at www.cbp.org/CTPAT
