CTPAT stands for Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. Implemented in November 2001, CTPAT is a voluntary joint government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen overall supply chain and border security. Designed to protect the supply chain from criminal activities such as drug trafficking, terrorism, human smuggling and illegal contraband. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requests that businesses ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate their security guidelines to their business partners within the supply chain. CTPAT offers businesses an opportunity to play a major role in the war against terrorism and ensure a more secure supply chain for their employees, suppliers, and customers. Dorel Juvenile Group Inc received it’s CTPAT certification in December 2003 from U.S. Customs.

CTPAT impacts nearly every department within our organization as well as outside entities such as carriers and foreign suppliers. Security is everyone’s responsibility. All Dorel Juvenile Group Inc employees, contractors, service providers, visitors, and others are expected to comply with the CTPAT Importer Security Criteria as well as any policies, procedures, and instructions issued by Dorel Juvenile Group.
