U.S. Customs And Border Protection Announces Three New Members Of Commercial Targeting And Analysis Center


Participating agencies jointly target commercial imports that threaten health and safety -

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced last week that three additional Federal agencies have formally joined the Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center (CTAC). CTAC is designed to enhance the Federal government’s ability to target commercial imports that pose threats to the health and safety of the American public and to address other border management goals. A key means of effectuating CTAC’s goals is that personnel from all participating agencies work together at one location in Washington and also collaborate at ports around the country.

CBP explained that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) formally joined CTAC. FDA, FWS, and NMFS will partner with eight other Federal agencies in CTAC, including CBP, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Food Safety Inspection Service, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Law Enforcement.
