New TSN committee to help CBP advance data initiative

New TSN committee to help CBP advance data initiative

   U.S. Customs and Border Protection has created a new committee within the Trade Support Network to advise the agency on how to collect commercial trade data for security targeting before shipments arrive at an overseas port.

   The TSN comprises more than 150 industry experts who provide advice on Customs modernization issues.

   Speaking at a TSN meeting in Manhattan Beach, Calif., Commissioner Robert Bonner said the Supply Chain Security Committee will be headed by Tom Bush, CBP’s director of Automated Customs Environment Targeting, and Michael Laden, head of Target’s customs broker operation.

   The committee will assist the agency’s Advanced Trade Data Initiative launched last year to identify ways to get companies to share purchase orders and other data from the manufacturing point of origin. Security experts and industry officials say that advance shipping data filed by ocean carriers on the manifest is not reliable because it comes through a third party.

   Bonner repeated his vision for accelerating progress in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism that he originally floated to reporters three weeks ago in Washington during the Customs Trade Symposium, according to a copy of his speech. He emphasized that CBP is getting ready to more clearly define what measures importers should require of their vendors at the point of stuffing. Companies that go the extra mile by adopting smart container technology and other measures would get full “green lane” benefits, meaning virtually inspection-free transit across the border.
