Supply Chain Security: DHS Could Improve Cargo Security by Periodically Assessing Risks from Foreign Ports
Stephen L. Caldwell (au)
Foreign ports and cargo carried by vessels from these ports are critical to the U.S. economy, but can be exploited by terrorists. Within the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Coast Guard are responsible for maritime security. Through the Container Security Initiative (CSI), CBP identifies and examines U.S.-bound cargo that may conceal weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and through the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), CBP partners with international trade community members to secure the flow of U.S.-bound goods. Under the International Port Security (IPS) program, Coast Guard officials visit foreign ports to assess compliance with security standards. This report addresses (1) the extent to which DHS has assessed the foreign ports that pose the greatest risk to the global supply chain and focused its maritime container security programs to address those risks; and (2) actions DHS has taken to help ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of its maritime security programs. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
