Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection
This document announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), will begin the testing of the Trusted Trader programa new program that will streamline the process through which importers can establish to CBP that they strive to secure their supply chains and strengthen their internal controls for compliance with the existing laws and regulations administered or enforced by CBP. The goals of the Trusted Trader program will be to: Achieve integrated U.S. government collaborations that result in enhanced efficiencies leading to a reduction in government-wide resource expenditures; enhance information sharing between government agencies; lower the administrative cost of participants by streamlining the application and validation process; and increase the efficiencies in the existing trade programs. The Trusted Trader program will strengthen security, identify low-risk trade entities, and increase overall efficiency of trade, by segmenting risk and processing by account. This test of the Trusted Trader program aims to move toward a whole of government approach to supply chain security and trade compliance by strengthening government collaboration between CBP and FDA and between CBP and CPSC. CBP seeks to encourage entities through incentives not currently available to members participating in both Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C- TPAT) and Importer Self-Assessment (ISA) to secure their supply chains and strengthen their internal controls for compliance with the existing laws and regulations administered or enforced by CBP.
