Global Security Verification (GSV)
Following the events of September 11, 2001, governments and customs organizations around the world have implemented supply chain security standards to secure trade, protect against terrorist acts, and to combat illegal trafficking.
The enhanced supply chain security standards and criteria, including C-TPAT, PIP and AEO, have been embraced and implemented by the global trade community. As part of enforcing and adhering to the international supply chain security standards, companies must assess their supply chain to identify, mitigate and eliminate potential security risks.
Intertek’s 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.
Intertek’s GSV program integrates multiple global supply chain security initiatives, including C-TPAT, PIP and AEO. Our mission is to partner with international suppliers and importers to drive the development of a global security verification process, resulting in increased safety assurance, risk control, efficiency and cost savings for all participants.
