In June 2005, the WCO Council adopted the SAFE Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate global trade and act as a deterrent to international terrorism, secure revenue collections and promote trade worldwide. Increasingly, countries are adopting the SAFE Framework standards into their own customs regimes. C-TPAT, AEO, PIP, Frontline and SEP all utilize the same SAFE Framework standards from the WCO.
As long time advocates of Compliance, we are proud of our affiliations:
- We have held AEO status since February 2010 which enables us to take advantage of the benefits of recognition such as faster customs clearances for our clients.
- Participants of C-TPAT and using the ‘Best Practice Guide’ as benchmark for our operations to allow a smoother passage through US Customs
- Furthermore, we are a Department of Transport approved Regulated Agent and hold TSA approval as well.
