CTPAT Champion Overview




CTPAT fundamentals e-learning training

Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a voluntary program that provides benefits for companies certified under the program. CTPAT is a layer in CBP’s cargo enforcement strategy. It is intended to strengthen supply chains and improve U.S. border security.

The success of the program for a CTPAT certified company depends on the entire company working together to insure that security measures are followed to secure the supply chain. Everyone working together helps the company remain in compliance. This course provides an overview and responsibilities of those in charge of the CTPAT program within an organization.  This is commonly referred to as the CTPAT Champion.  However, other individuals are key to the success of this program and are normally referred to as Stakeholders, usually involving head of departments within an organization.
