    What is the C-TPAT Audit in China and Asia

    The C-TPAT Audit also called Custom Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, is a supply chain security program led by U.S. Customs and Border Protection focused on improving the security of private companies’ supply chains with respect to terrorism.

    Our qualified inspectors freely survey the security and business courses of action of your business accomplices. We go on location and get the data you have to guarantee C-TPAT consistence.

    It aims to verify the capacity of your potential new supplier in Asia to adhere to the C-TPAT code of conduct.

    Why use the C-TPAT Audit in China and Asia

    In the context of globalisation and international competition, many companies source labour-intensive goods from developing and newly industrialized countries. However, working conditions in these countries often do not comply with basic labour standards, such as those established by the International Labour Organization (ILO). To address this issue, many companies and associations have created individual codes of conduct and monitoring systems.

    The proliferation of individual codes, varying audit procedures and diverging approaches, has resulted in audit duplications within the same factory. This leads to unnecessary efforts, confusion about requirements, lack of transparency, lack of accountability, and higher costs for companies and their producers in risk countries.

    BSCI works to tackle these challenges by offering a broad platform for cooperation.
