The updated Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) Minimum Security Criteria (MSC) Workbooks for members has been released and has entered into a commenting period, as of July 25. Over the next 90 days CTPAT members are advised to log into the CTPAT portal and review the updated MSC workbooks in the portal’s Document Section under Public Library.
How to Provide Feedback
In the portal, members can submit a MSC feedback form that will be sent directly to the CTPAT Field offices. There is also a schedule of workshops available and although it is not mandatory, it is highly recommended that members attend one.
The updated criteria include the following
- Agricultural Security/Personnel Security Issues
- Non-IT Security technology
- High Security Seals/Highway Carrier Issues
- Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing/Risk Assessment
- Security Management and Administration
It is crucial for members to familiarize themselves with the workbook and submit their input within the allotted 90 days. If you have any questions regarding the updated MSC or how to provide feedback, contact MGTA.
