U.S. Customs and Border Protection Holds Quarterly Meeting with Industry Advisory Group

On Thursday October 29th, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) held its latest quarterly meeting with the Advisory Committee on Commercial Operations (COAC), a group of trade industry representatives officially recognized to advise CBP, the Department of Treasury, and other components of the Department of Homeland Security. The COAC allows U.S. government officials involved with trade policy and operations to work with industry members on a variety of issues on an ongoing basis while maintaining transparency and receiving public comments on their progress.

The COAC represents the important principles of ‘co-creation’ and ‘bi-directional education’ that play a critical role in building the public-private partnerships needed to manage risk while moving cargo as efficiently as possible in a secure environment.

This latest COAC meeting reviewed the progress made by the following six (6) subcommittees. For additional details click here or the links below.
