We have been endorsed by and have spoken before various industry and private associations including the Young Presidents Association and the Chief Financial Officers Committee Member of The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountant’s where the members received continuing education credits. In addition, we hold C-TPAT seminars for Custom Brokers and Freight Forwarders who invite present and potential customers. The seminars enable these service providers to not only meet their C-TPAT obligation of conducting research but also to maintain and secure new business contacts.

We present at corporate meetings where the audience may consist of members of management, customs/imports compliance, operations, human resources and IT. On the other hand, if the corporation has several divisions, the client may invite other members of management from various locations to attend the meeting.

Our presentations are tailored to the audience and their knowledge of the C-TPAT program, and include the following topics:

  1. Origin of the C-TPAT program.
  2. Benefits of the program as it relates to U.S. Customs and specifically to your industry.
  3. Description of the program.
  4. Information to improve and maintain security and integrity of your business operations.
  5. Discuss how to create a C-TPAT Team for companies that have one or more locations as well as help them consolidate some of the various functions for improved C-TPAT accountability.
  6. Provide various methods for collecting and evaluating C-TPAT information as well as prepare written procedures that will detail how to implement the program. In addition, we will describe how C-TPAT members must maintain the program in order to avoid being decertified.
  7. Review the process required to prepare for the validation and revalidation phase.

C-TPAT Insurance Bonds

Air freight consolidators, ocean transportation intermediaries and non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCC) must possess a valid continuous international carrier bond and/or in bond/export consolidator bond (IBEC) registered with US Customs & Border Protection (CBP). They are as follows:

1. An NVOCC must possess a Type 3 International Carrier Bond – Minimum amount is $50,000.

2. Airfreight consolidators must possess a Type 2 Continuous Custodial Bond.

After the bond is purchased, it is sent to the local port director who pre-approves it. The bond is then sent to the CBP office in Indianapolis, IN, where it is registered. This last part of the process (registration) takes a minimum of 7 days before the customs bond number is issued to the applicant.

Norman Jaspan Associates, Inc. will work with you in obtaining these bonds.
