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.

In fact, WRAP Principles 11 and 12 require that manufacturers understand and comply with buyers’ security requirements, including their CTPAT obligations. 

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 course provides an in-depth review of CTPAT requirements and best practices for ensuring compliance. It can be completed in approximately eight hours and is offered regionally in local languages. Attendees will learn how to assess and improve facility security and meet buyer expectations.
