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

Annual audits

Metropolitan undergoes an annual audit to ensure that C-TPAT documentation is maintained.
