National Coffee Association's anti-terrorism initiative.

NEW YORK -- The National Coffee Association (NCA) recently launched an initiative in support of the U.S. coffee industry's participation in the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program of the U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBT). The NCA is the first industry association to undertake an initiative to support industry wide participation in the C-TPAT program through the launch of a proprietary internet-based supply chain security platform that will register foreign suppliers and their C-TPAT related security practices for industry members.

"The threat of terrorism has changed the stakes and the rules for American commerce," said Robert E Nelson, NCA president and CEO. He added, "The NCA C-TPAT program will help the industry partner with the government to enhance homeland security while easing potential burdens on commerce. NCA encourages all members of the supply chain to become part of this important initiative."

The NCA has partnered with the Global Security Verification (GSV) cross sector industry initiative and Intertek to develop the industry's shared information platform designed to facilitate importers' and suppliers' participation and compliance with C-TPAT requirements.
