C-TPAT (Customs Trade Partners Against Terrorism)
Tier 2 certified in good standing since 2005.
Implemented by US Customs and Border Protection, C-TPAT ensures the secure transport of goods into the USA. Participating in the program means Metropolitan Tea plays an active role in the war on terrorism.
C-TPAT certification ensures our goods travel swiftly across borders. Compliance includes:
- Random hazard analysis testing
- Screening of all suppliers in their countries of origin
- Detailed employee background checks
- Extremely high levels of shipping container and conveyance scrutiny
Metropolitan undergoes an annual audit to ensure that C-TPAT documentation is maintained.
