Obtaining C-TPAT certification offers businesses an opportunity to take an active role in improving national security.<br /><br />C-TPAT is a voluntary supply chain security program led by CBP and focused on improving the security of private companies' supply chains with respect to terrorism. C-TPAT recognizes that Customs can provide the highest level of security only through close cooperation with the ultimate owners of the supply chain: importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators and manufacturers. <br /><br />Through this initiative, Customs invites businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate their security guidelines to their business partners within the supply chain.<br /></p>
