C-TPAT Audits

HQTS C-TPAT Audit evaluates compliance with the Customs & Trade Partnership against Terrorism. This is a joint US government and business voluntary program to build cooperative relationships that strengthen the global supply chain and border security.

Companies who achieve C-TPAT certification must have a documented process for determining and alleviating risk throughout their international supply chain. This allows companies to be considered low risk, resulting in expedited processing of their cargo, including fewer Customs examinations. Since compliance is voluntary, an HQTS C-TPAT Audit can provide verification of such compliance.

The following conditions are audited:

  • Vital Items
  • Conveyance Security
  • Container Security
  • Physical Access Controls
  • Personnel Security
  • Procedural Security
  • Physical Security
  • Security Training and Threat Awareness
  • Information Technology
  • Awareness
  • Security
