The Canada Customs PIP trusted trader program has a great deal to offer.
Partners in Protection (PIP) is the Canadian trusted trader program, a government compliance and security certification attesting to participants' merit.
The counterpart of C-TPAT, the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program, PIP enlists private industry to help enhance border and trade chain security, combat terrorism, and detect and prevent smuggling.
A prerequisite for FAST border clearance
For Canadian companies, PIP is one of the prerequisites for participation in Free and Secure Trade (FAST), the expedited border clearance program.
Beyond access to the highly valued FAST program, PIP benefits include preferential treatment by other PIP members, enhanced supply chain security and corporate compliance.
To gain certification companies must meet government-set compliance and supply chain security standards.
