Customs & Border Protection's Security Measures

Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)

C-TPAT is a voluntary program. C-TPAT partners with importers, carriers, forwarders, warehousemen and other trade participants to protect their supply chains from concealment of terrorist weapons.

C-TPAT's strategic plan includes:
Do you know? 10+2 USCBP Rule Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirement
  • To help prevent terrorist weapons from being transported to the USA, ocean vessel carriers bringing cargo to the U.S. are required to transmit certain data to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) about the cargo before the goods are exported.
  • It will be a combined effort between the U.S. Importer, Foreign Vendor, Freight Forwarder and Steamship Lines. The two parties responsible to transmit the data are ABI filers (typically Customs Brokers) and the Carriers.
