The document contained information about the CTPAT Portal that was in the process of being updated to meet current modern computing standards and to allow for updates to the minimum-security criteria. Those updates would enhance operational efforts and allow for the expansion of new features not possible in the current version of the Portal’s platform. Due to unforeseen developmental delays, CBP is pausing the proposed update of these internal systems. As a result, certain parts of the CTPAT program description contained in the February 18, 2022 document are inaccurate. This correction is being issued to remove all inaccurate information regarding the program that was published in the February 18, 2022 document. Additionally, third-party logistics providers and Mexican long-haul highway carriers were inadvertently omitted from the list of eligible CTPAT program participants in the Abstract section of the document. This document corrects that omission by adding these two types of parties in the list of eligible CTPAT program participants in the Abstract. Any future updates to the Portal and/ or new requests for information, will continue to be posted when the need arises and, if, or when, the CTPAT Portal is able to resume its needed updates to modernize the platform.

certain types of CTPAT program participants that were inadvertently 
omitted from the list in the Abstract.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 18, 2022, U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register (87 FR 9371) 
a document requesting comments from the public and affected agencies on 
revisions to the information collection, in accordance with the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), that is part of Customs-Trade 
Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) and the CTPAT Trade Compliance 
Program. The document contained information about the CTPAT Portal that 
was in the process of being updated to meet current modern computing 
standards and to allow for updates to the minimum-security criteria. 
Those updates would enhance operational efforts and allow for the 
expansion of new features not possible in the current version of the 
Portal's platform. Due to unforeseen developmental delays, CBP is 
pausing the proposed update of these internal systems. As a result, 
certain parts of the CTPAT program description contained in the 
February 18, 2022 document are inaccurate. This correction is being 
issued to remove all inaccurate information regarding the program that 
was published in the February 18, 2022 document.
    Additionally, third-party logistics providers and Mexican long-haul 
highway carriers were inadvertently omitted from the list of eligible 
CTPAT program participants in the Abstract section of the document. 
This document corrects that omission by adding these two types of 
parties in the list of eligible CTPAT program participants in the 
Abstract.
    Any future updates to the Portal and/or new requests for 
information, will continue to be posted when the need arises and, if, 
or when, the CTPAT Portal is able to resume its needed updates to
