Customs/Supply Chain Security

Voluntary government sponsored initiatives such as Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and Partners in Protection (PIP) are cooperative programs aimed at strengthening and improving international supply chains and improving border security. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is one of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's largest and most complex components, with a priority mission of keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. Likewise, the Canada Border Security Agency (CBSA) has a similar mission for Canada. However, the price of security is stringent enforcement of hundreds of import and export regulations.

The Customs/Supply Chain Security Initiatives group develops tools to help address common security issues to keep the flow of material and parts moving efficiently across U.S. borders. This committee is also responsible for planning the highly regarded annual AIAG Customs Town Hall, which highlights ever evolving border regulations in North America.
