Preparing for an Audit Partnership in Responsible Trade

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for preventing the entry of prohibited goods into the U.S. market. CBP encourages stakeholders in the trade community to closely examine their supply chains to ensure goods imported into the U.S. meet all statutory and regulatory requirements.

CBP created this best practice framework to provide the importing community general guidance on four core areas in which the trade should target its due diligence: Compliance, Social Responsibility, Traceability and Remediation.
