U.S. Exporters to Partner with CBP in June 2015
May 30, 2015


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is preparing to deploy Phase II of the C-TPAT Program (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) in June 2015! The deployment will be inclusive of exporters. Benefits of exporters joining as a C-TPAT Partner includes global security partnerships, prioritized export shipments, reduced examinations and much more! There is no cost to join!

From the NCBFAA:

"Please be aware that C-TPAT is preparing to deploy Phase II of Portal 2.0 on May 30, 2015. All data may not be available until June 1st. This deployment will restructure the security profile function into individual line items. To prevent potential applicants from having to conduct redundant work by completing the security profile twice, once in the current format and a second time immediately after June 1st in the new format, C-TPAT will not be accepting new applications after April 15, 2015, until Phase II deploys. If you are already a C-TPAT Partner and have further questions, please contact your assigned Supply Chain Security Specialist. If you do not yet have an assigned Supply Chain Security Specialist, please contact with any questions."

President Biden announced on April 12th his intent to nominate Chris Magnus, who has served as police chief of Tucson, Ariz., since January 2016, as commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

According to a White House press release, Magnus rose through the ranks of the Lansing, Mich., police department and has also served as police chief in the cities of Fargo, N.D., and Richmond, Calif. “In each of these cities,” the press release said, “Magnus developed a reputation as a progressive police leader who focused on relationship-building between the police and community, implementing evidence-based best practices, promoting reform, and insisting on police accountability.” The White House also cited Magnus’ “extensive experience in addressing immigration issues” during his time in Tucson near the U.S.-Mexico border.
