Event description:

Overview: The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary supply chain security program led by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It is intended to improve the security of supply chains of private enterprises against the threat of terrorism. The program was launched in November 2001, with seven large U.S. companies as the initial participants. By the end of 2014, more than 10,000 members joined the effort. More than 4300 importers in the program account for more than half of the value of all merchandise imported into the U.S. C-TPAT certification can be attained by companies who seek to be considered low risk, enabling their cargo to be processed in an expedited manner with fewer Customs examinations. The certification involves a documented process for determining and mitigating risk throughout a company’s international supply chain. The program is voluntary, but affords those participating in it a huge advantage in terms of international trade. In this webinar, we will explore the best approach to C-TPAT certification and discuss best practices. Why Should You Attend: This C-TPAT training will provide valuable assistance to all personnel in FDA-regulated companies currently facing the global challenges of counterfeit and contraband operations, which have a negative impact on their revenue and, potentially, on their reputation. The industries regulated by FDA that are affected include: Supply Chain Management and Analysts Quality Assurance Management and Analysts Regulatory Affairs Management and Analysts Legal Professionals in Manufacturing Companies Information Technology Managers and Analysts Compliance Managers and Analysts Business Stakeholders responsible for manufacturing supply chain functions Consultants working in the manufacturing/supply chain sectors of industry Transportation personnel who are handling goods and supervisors Security personnel responsible for supply chain activities Auditors and Inspectors responsible for evaluating supply chain security and compliance The webinar should target consultants working in the life sciences industry who are involved in securing their supply chain systems. The webinar should also be marketed to tobacco and related industry companies, as they are now under FDA regulations (Tobacco Control Act 2009/ Deeming Act 2016) and most have devices that are used to deliver e-liquids.
