With ever changing global supply chains and enhanced supply chain security standards and criteria, such as C-TPAT, PIP, GSV and AEO, the international community has been embracing and implementing more rigorous management of supply chain operators.
As part of enforcing the adherence with security standards, companies are required to assess their supply chain to identify, mitigate and eliminate any potential security risks.
Whilst most of the standards aren’t compulsory there are many advantages that can be gained form implementation such as :-
- International recognition
- Customs simplifications
- Commercial benefits
- Secure supply chain
- Financial Benefits
- Business benefits
International Associates had developed a verification system (ISA) that allows an integrated approach to CT-PAT, AEO, GSV and PIP in a single assessment, resulting in increased safety assurance, risk control, efficiency, and cost savings for all participants.
