The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a program of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. WRAP supports production facility compliance with CTPAT program requirements that protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and facilitate the implementation of effective preventive measures.

Foreign manufacturing site minimum security criteria are the fundamental building blocks for overseas suppliers looking to institute effective security practices. These measures optimize supply chain performance and mitigate the risk of loss, theft, and contraband smuggling that could potentially enable terrorism in the global supply chain. The determination and scope of criminal elements targeting world commerce through internal conspiracies requires companies — foreign manufacturers, in particular — to elevate their security practices. 

This two-hour training provides a high-level review of CTPAT requirements and best practices for ensuring compliance. It is offered regionally and in local languages. Attendees will learn management strategies for assessing and improving facility security with the goal of meeting buyer expectations.
