Global Security Verification (GSV) - Supply Chain Security

Following the events of September 11, 2001, governments and customs organizations around the world have implemented new supply chain security standards.
Global Security Verification (GSV) program employs a cutting-edge methodology for promoting best practices throughout the global trade industry, enabling importers and suppliers to mitigate risks associated with the cross-border transport of goods, while simultaneously expediting their arrival at destination markets.
Best practices are achieved through the effective utilization of resources, structured processes and innovation.

Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN)

One of the most common complaints made by the international supplier base is the repetition of Supply Chain Security audits.
This common complaint brought multiple industry leaders together in September 2014 to identify a strategy that would help reduce the cost and number of supply chain security audits conducted on global suppliers and factories each year.
This collaboration led to the creation of a single agreed-upon security audit and sharing platform that would allow importers to conduct and evaluate shared CTPAT compliant supplier and factory security audits.
The Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN) was developed to facilitate this strategy and establish an audit sharing platform that would help improve audit consistency, lower audit costs, and reduce audit frequency while maintaining confidentiality. Both US Customs and the CTPAT organization have been introduced to SCAN and have acknowledged the potential benefits of the program.
SCAN is comprised of a diverse group of importers both big and small.
Member companies may be competitors in the market, but partners in the efforts to improve supply chain security.
SCAN is committed to creating a shared supply chain security audit program.
SCAN will benefit both the member companies and the global suppliers who participate through fewer audits conducted and increased consistency among supply chain security expectations. This collaboration will lead to lower costs of goods for both parties.
