The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program is the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) multi-layered cargo enforcement strategy. Through this voluntary public-private program, the CBP works with importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed customs brokers and manufacturers to ensure the security of cargo in the international supply chain. The program is run under the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006.

If you want to learn more about complying with C-TPAT and its effect on FDA-regulated industries, this event is meant for you. Join expert speaker Carolyn Troiano in this live webinar, as she provides an in-depth overview of the C-TPAT program. Carolyn will explore top compliance issues and industry best practices related to C-TPAT compliance, as well as strategies that you can use for reducing the overall cost as well as the complexity of ensuring compliance with C-TPAT.
