What Is C TPAT Compliance, When it comes to CTPAT compliance, it is important your business have all the correct documents.
CTPAT Documentation for Personnel

For business partners, you must review and screen your customer database, vendor/supplier database, transactional partners, and service providers. In addition, your foreign suppliers must complete and submit their CTPAT questionnaire to you and identify any weaknesses, have an improvement plan, and retain all such documents.
For IT and technology access, you can use your C TPAT manual alongside any technology control plans you may have for export control purposes. You must keep all documents, including a wide-aisle tour plan to avoid sharing any controlled technology with authorized people. Keeping proof of internal audits and reviews is a must to ensure all procedures are in place and being followed.
