PIP & C-TPAT
All importers and exporters are being encouraged to implement security
measures throughout their supply chain.
Canada’s Partners In Protection (PIP) and the U.S.’s Customs and Trade
Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) programs cover many aspects of
an entity’s business such as physical security (e.g. buildings,
external areas), personnel security (e.g. hiring practices),
procedural security (e.g. security controls) and service providers.
Our consultants are trained to evaluate all requirements of both
programs and typically obtain information through interviews,
observation and/or written representations from the client. While the
PIP and C-TPAT
programs are voluntary, an importer wishing to use the FAST option
must be a participant in either one or both of these programs.
Our consultants will review and document your security measures
then evaluate if your company will meet the requirements of the PIP
and C-TPAT programs. If the consultant detects a weakness in one or
more of your security measures, our consultant will advise you of
measures that can be implemented prior to filing the PIP or C-TPAT
The objective of this type of engagement is to ensure that you obtain
the optimum security rating from Customs authorities when filing your
application under either of these programs.
