U.S. Customs Incentive Programs: C-TPAT and ISA
Recorded On: 03/08/2017
If your company is currently an importer or exporter, you’ll want to attend this webinar. Our featured speaker will discuss two incentive-based partnership programs offered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) was created in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. C-TPAT is a supply chain security program that rewards member-companies with benefits in return for tightening up supply chain security protocols. Participants are granted incentives such as fewer CBP cargo examinations and front of line privileges in the event an exam is required. C-TPAT is also open to U.S. exporters. Our speaker will also discuss the Importer Self-Assessment Program (ISA). Qualified participants in the ISA program are removed from CBP audit pools. Participation in C-TPAT is a prerequisite to applying for ISA. This webinar is ideally suited for any company engaged in importing or exporting and for any person involved in international trade compliance, logistics or security. This session is an elective for the Product Safety Aware program.
