C-TPAT audit

In order to demonstrate compliance with international supply chain security standards, importers must continually assess their supply chains to identify, mitigate and eliminate potential security hazards as well as monitor ongoing improvements.  Failure to comply with importer security requirements, such as C-TPAT, may result in Customs delaying your shipments or even having them seized at enormous cost to your business.
