What is C-TPAT?
In 2001, the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism was initiated by the United States in order to strengthen overall supply chain and border security by encouraging companies to enhance their security programs.
The C-TPAT program allows the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to designate companies as low risk and therefore less likely to be examined at border crossings. This designation is based on a company’s past customs compliance history, and a validation of its supply chain security profile. Basically, CBP is asking businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices.
Impact for Canadian Exporters
C-TPAT is a voluntary program, but business opportunities in the U.S. are being restricted to those with a CTPAT certification. Some additional benefits of being C-TPAT compliant are:
• Reductions in border inspections
• Reductions in border clearance times allowing for predictable transit times and transportation costs
• Priority movement of cargo across the border even during a red alert
• Reduced compliance costs with customs requirements
• Access to the FAST lanes at the Canadian/US border
• Improved security in the work place
• Reductions in cargo theft
Export Development Canada & C-TPAT
Security enhancements to property, personnel and procedures may be required in order for exporters to become C-TPAT compliant. EDC has developed a Security Compliance Loan to help Canadian companies finance the upgrades required to meet CTPAT security standards.
We just got our new security screen doors put in and they are beautiful. The installation person did a great job – took so much care with our house, went over all the details about our doors with us and left our house spotless when he was done. We are more than happy with the results!
After a couple of break-ins in the vicinity, we decided it was time to secure our house more effectively. Some research and a visit to the Toronto Home Show brought us to Tom and Dave at Metalex. We were impressed by the quality and attractiveness of the product and by the high level of customer service. Our door was installed today in a professional, courteous manner.
The service I received from this company was wonderful. The guy who installed it was very friendly and helpful. He explained everything to me that he was doing. He knew exactly what he was doing. He cleaned up everything afterwards and did a fantastic jobs. My neighbours have been asking me about the door and it is admired by all.
Metalex Doors Quality and Installation Service – I entered a draw at Metalex Products booth at the Markham Home Show last fall, and was fortunate enough to win the prize, an ornamental screen door. The door was installed last week by Clint and Mike, two Metalex installers, and I am very pleased with the door and the installation. I particularly like the security feature of a deadbolt lock on the door, and a number of my friends are also impressed with the door.
Since 1986, we at Crime Concern have worked with Metalex, especially through our Neighbourhood Watch programme. Our first contact was when we were experiencing a rash of break ins through basement windows. After consultation with our office and Toronto Police, Metalex developed bars for the windows, with easy escape so no one would be trapped in a basement. They have gone on to assist in other crime problems, such as different types of door and window security. There are many companies with window and door bars, and we cannot recommend specific companies. At the same time, we must admit that we have always found Tom Reimer and his staff very caring about satisfying community and individual needs. We know that Tom Reimer and Metalex will continue to assist in crime prevention and hope that he will be able to assist you.
