"In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to establish a new system of records titled, 'Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, DHS/CBP-018 Customs-- Trade Partnership Against Terrorism System of Records.' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Customs and Border Protection, DHS/CBP-018, Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism to collect and maintain records about members of the trade community related to Customs and Border Protection's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program. Businesses accepted into the program, called partners, agree to analyze, measure, monitor, report, and enhance their supply chains in exchange for greater security and facilitated processing offered by Customs and Border Protection. The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program allows Customs and Border Protection to focus its resources on higher risk businesses and thereby assists the agency in achieving its mission to secure the border and facilitate the movement of legitimate international trade. This new system of records collects and manages information, including personally identifiable information, about prospective, ineligible, current, or former trade partners in Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, and other entities and individuals in their supply chains."
