C-TPAT: 2007 in Review

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today issued an overview and assessment of the operations of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program in 2007.

The year end review contained the following statistics regarding the C-TPAT program during calendar year 2007:

  • Supply chain security specialist visited manufacturing and logistics facilities in 79 countries, representing some of the most terrorist prone and high risk areas of the world.
  • C-TPAT validated 3,011 supply chains, representing a 27 percent increase from 2006. Of the 3,011 validations conducted, 601 or 20 percent were revalidations. This was the first year that C-TPAT began re-verifying supply chains.
  • C-TPAT certified 2,601 new members in accordance with SAFE Port Act requirements.
  • C-TPAT Tier III status was granted to 17 companies as a result of the validation process.
  • C-TPAT suspended or removed 112 companies from the program for security breaches or failure to meet C-TPAT's minimum security criteria as revealed in the validation process. Of the 112 companies, 47 were either conditionally or fully reinstated in the C-TPAT program after they demonstrated to CBP's satisfaction that immediate and sustained corrective action had been taken.
