Working in collaboration with the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), CBP is taking steps to verify DLT feasibility with global interoperability standards through the DHS Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP). Under this program, CBP has partnered with the private sector on five projects testing DLT in the following steel, natural gas, oil, food safety, and e-commerce sectors.

Through these projects, CBP seeks to achieve the following objectives:

  • Adopt interoperability standards
  • Facilitate legitimate trade 
  • Accept data from traditional and non-traditional actors
