U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Tuesday announced the dates for its annual Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism conference. The event will be held in Washington, D.C., Jan. 8-10, at a location to be determined.
Registration for the C-TPAT conference
is now open and individuals interested in attending are encouraged to register as soon as possible due to the popularity of the event.
The event is typically open to representatives of companies that are members of the voluntary supply chain security program, but CBP is also inviting those outside the program who are thinking about joining.
The conference consists of general sessions and workshops on the latest best practices for securing cargo shipments, facilities, and information systems from tampering, theft and smuggling.
Registration costs $171.
