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.
