What is CTPAT?

The Custom-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a direct result of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The U.S. government, with the assistance of the trade community, created this security program to ensure a more secure international supply chain. Certified members of CTPAT, who can demonstrate thorough controls over their supply chain, will be granted substantial benefits by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
